Meet the women you don’t know, behind the mission you do.

As the U.S. raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women—played with humor and candor by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe—cheer on these remarkable Americans who enabled John Glen to be launched into space while you groove out to a soundtrack by Pharrell.

Sponsored by U-M Museum of Natural History. For more information visit the Ann Arbor Summer Festival website.

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is an exhilarating celebration of performing arts, outdoor entertainment, and community spirit. A boutique music and arts festival, the nearly four-week gathering offers dozens of performances, activities, exhibitions, and screenings representative of the best in music, dance, contemporary circus, comedy, film, spectacle, street arts, and family entertainment.

At Top of the Park, enjoy movies under the stars on an inflatable screen. Catch a selection of recent hits, cult classics, and family-friendly films screened in the open air. Be sure to bring comfy blankets, purchase popcorn and other treats from festival vendors, and enjoy cinema al fresco on the green.
