These Girls Dressed In Hidden Figures Costumes Give Us Hope

These days, hope is in vanishingly short supply. We don't need to link you to anything for you to know that we're in a time of turmoil. So when we see girls dressed as the inspirational women depicted in Hidden Figures, we take that as a glimmering light at the end of the tunnel.

Ambrielle Baker-Rogers, Miah Bell-Olson, and Morgan Coleman are just elementary schoolers, but they're already inspirational at a professional level. The three students dressed up for a project commemorating Black History Month at Milwaukee College Prep.

“The teacher who organized it, Mr. Terrance Sims, wanted to create a series of posters that positively affirm the excellence of his students, as well as shine a light on the beauty of African-American culture,” Jerrica Rogers, mother to Baker-Rogers, told BuzzFeed.

People like Janelle Monáe, who plays Mary Jackson in the film, have already picked up the image. And it's striking, and strikingly reminiscent of the rapturous look these girls are giving Kristen Wiig as a Ghostbuster. Of course, Hidden Figures has the twin advantages of being about real scientists and not being a remake. So that's, like, double inspiring.
