Hidden No More: Black Women In Space

Mar 12, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

While the movie Hidden Figures exposed the unknown importance of black women to the US Cold War space program, the New Space Revolution is being driven in no small part by those who inherited that role and are dramatically expanding on it — women who are certainly not hidden figures. A frank and free-wheeling discussion on the growing positive impact of black women as leaders of the human breakout into space, and what can be done to help accelerate the trend.
