Black Girls Code
20th Century Fox and Black Girls CODE have partnered to createFutureKatherineJohnsons.com, a website built by the next generation of young women poised to make a difference in our world the same way that Katherine, Dorothy and Mary have in the upcoming film,HIDDEN FIGURES. The movie tells the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history. Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, Glen Powell & Kimberly Quinn, HIDDEN FIGURES opens in select theaters Christmas Day, and everywhere January 6th, 2017.
Founded in 2011, Black Girls CODE is a not-for-profit organization focused on introducing girls from underrepresented communities ages 7 to 17 to the field of technology. Their mission is to increase the women of color in the digital space and diversify the tech industry.
