Wow, the film, Hidden Figures, is outstanding. I highly recommend.
As described online at IMDB, it’s the story of a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program.
Hidden Figures shows how progress can come without violence.
This is not to belittle the people who fight for equality and encounter violence, because sometimes fighting for equality and freedom isn’t pretty but is necessary for the good of humanity.
However, all examples of nonviolent progress can be recognized as significant and attractive. Hidden Figures does this.
I also appreciated the evidence of families working together and staying strong in their faith and faithfulness.
From 21st Century Science and Health:
At first, Truth leads the few and faithful. As time marches on, the few and faithful thoughts of Truth move forward with the motto of freedom. The powers of this world will react and the old-guard will try to stop truth and make it submit to their human standards and systems. Science, not distracted by threats or assaults, continues to progress. There is always some chaos; however a mobilization to truth’s standard is inevitable.
Improvement comes as mindsets improve. World history illustrates the might of Mind and shows human power to be proportionate to its embodiment of right thinking or spiritual clarity. Words and actions, breathing the omnipotence of divine justice and wisdom, are what powerfully break through discrimination, human agendas, and diminishing returns. Not by weapons and blood does the breath of freedom come. Love is the liberator.
