This month's featured film is award winning film «Hidden Figures», directed by Theodore Melfi.

Why this Film?

Hanneke Weitering, in «Why 'Hidden Figures' is a Movie Everyone Should Watch», writes:

«The film tells an incredible story of some truly inspiring people who helped shape American history. Specifically, it recounts the triumphs and struggles of three black women whose work was crucial to NASA in the early 1960s — a time when racial segregation was the law of the land, and gender discrimination was still the norm.»

Especially in Virginia, where the story takes place, local Jim Crow laws enforced segregation and discrimination against African-Americans, who were legally obligated to use separate facilities. Though NASA's Langley Research Center in Virginia did hire women and African-Americans, offices, restrooms and other areas were kept segregated."

— What Are We Doing?

In 2019, CAIR-SFBA will be holding a monthly movie night at the office.

This is an opportunity to collectively engage in learning, to give context, empathy, and depth to our solidarity and understanding of self. This is an opportunity to raise the consciousness of our community, by exposing one another to the stories and experiences often made invisible to us and often experienced by our own community members. Through this learning, may we be moved to address difficult and challenging social, political, and economic needs of this country.

We hope that you can join us every month in addressing a topic relevant to our commitment to Justice for the oppressed and marginalized.

We will post suggested readings for you to think through and prepare for a short community reflection!

This is a free event and food will be provided.

We are excited to learning with you inshaAllah!
