New York City African-American business Leaders Partner with Google, Facebook, AT&T and 20th Century Fox to Inspire 25,000 Students with Tickets to Hidden Figures – Hidden Figures tells true story of critical contributions made by three African-American women working at NASA during Space Race in the 1960s
– Initiative follows 2015 schools program offering free screenings of Selma
New York City African-American business leaders, in partnership with 20th Century Fox, Google, Facebook, Infor and AT&T, have launched an initiative to offer free admission to the critically-acclaimed feature, Hidden Figures, for over 25,000 students in New York.
New York schools are the first to benefit from the project. Like the 2015 project to screen Oscar-winner Selma – which reached 300,000 students across the country – the expectation is that other cities will join this important program as it rolls out in theaters nationwide.
