HIDDEN FIGURES (2016) tells the inspirational story of three African-American mathematicians; Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson. During the Cold War, the trio worked at NASA’s Langley Research Centre in Hampton as the US raced against the USSR to put a man into space. The intellectuals played a vital role in the launch of the now late astronaut John Glenn into orbit as well as in orchestrating his safe return. The film is based on the book by Margot Lee Shetterly.

Example:

Conflict with Katherine Johnson and her boss Al Harrison over her long breaks during her worktime

 

 

Katherine and Al (her boss) She told him that there wasn’t a colored bathroom for her to use close by and she had to walk a half mile to use a bathroom. Al Harrison was unaware that this was happening. Katherine was upset when confronted and let the whole room know how she felt discrimnated against. Al Harrison, was speechless and shocked to learn of this. Her co-workers were also stunned.

 

Yes, her boss made sure that she and her other co-workers who were negroes could use any bathroom at NASA Even though racism persisted in the minds of the characters, Al Harrison made it clear he would not tolerate it while he was in leadership at NASA and made it very clear by tearing the sign down himself.
