Dear Pennies & Pens,
I am pleased to announce the launch of Pennies & Pens Club as well as our inaugural event, Pennies and Pens Presents HIDDEN FIGURES. For this exclusive event, we will be meeting up to see HIDDEN FIGURES. Afterwards, we are going to head to Kona Grill for Reverse Happy Hour (9-11pm) so we can discuss the movie and network.

For those that don’t know, HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
We chose Hidden Figures for our first event because it chronicles an important yet little known part of Black American history. In essence, it tells a unique and original story through film. Since we’re all about helping Pennies & Pens discover original content we chose to make this film the focus of our first event.
I should also mention that two of the film’s main characters Katherine Johnson and Mary Jackson went to Hampton University which is my alma mater! So y’all know I had to show my fellow Hamptonians some love! Without Hampton, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
During this special event, Pennies & Pens will have the opportunity to see an original movie, meet and network with each other, and find out what Pennies & Pens club is all about. Basically, we’re creating a one of a kind experience just for you. In essence, this is an event, you do not want to miss!
