Sara Morley Pam Cha Interpersonal Communications 2110 20 February 2019 Hidden Figures Analysis This is a movie that highlights the importance of equality and seeing people as they truly are, instead of how we perceive them in the beginning. If you were a black female living in the south in the early 1900s it would definitely be a difficult time, and working at an occupation that was seen as a “man’s job” anyway just adds to those already unpleasant circumstances. In this paper I first want to highlight some of my own perceptions, and then go into the perceptions of characters in the film. As I am discussing these topics, I will probably comment once or twice on the culture of the time period, and part of the country to emphasize why those perceptions are meaningful. One of the first things that I would like to point out is my perception of the title of the movie in and of itself. “Hidden Figures”- the title, in my opinion has two meanings. The first being that we can see the word “figures” as numbers in a math equation. I love the part in the movie where Katherine Goble Johnson finds an old math formula to figure out the “new” math to figure how to find the “go- no go” point for the Friendship 7.
