Sara MorleyPam ChaInterpersonal Communications 211020 February 2019 Hidden Figures AnalysisThis 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 timeperiod, 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.
