Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae & Octavia Spencer Get Regal For 'Essence'

12/29/2016 0


Academy Award-nominee Taraji P. Henson, Academy Award-winner Octavia Spencer and Grammy-nominated music star Janelle Monáe, the incredibly talented cast of 'Hidden Figures', regally grace the February issue of Essence magazine.

The film, which is playing in select cities now, tells the untold story of three black women's groundbreaking efforts to send the first Americans into space in the 1960s. The women, also known as NASA's "colored computers", broke down racial and gender barriers.

Henson, who plays lead mathematician Katherine Johnson, told the magazine what it meant to her to portray her character. "When I was growing up, people told me out of their mouths math and science are for boys," she told the publication. "Like, no one showed me how to fall in love with numbers. If I had a teacher like Mrs. Johnson, who knows, I might be on the moon."
