Three brilliant African-American women at NASA -- Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) -- serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.

The films in this season represent the many ways we can see family; who we see as family and how family can affect relationships, loyalty and decision-making. These films can make us reflect on how we would react in these situations and who would be there for us. The big question is, who do we see as family and what makes them so? - Kieran Watt, Head of Programmes, The Black Curriculum
