Kellogg Community College’s Black History Month events continue Friday with a free Movie Night featuring a showing of the film “Hidden Figures.”

The showing will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9, at the Binda Performing Arts Center, on campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek. The movie event is free and open to the public.

“Hidden Figures” is a 2016 drama based on the true story of three African-American women and their contributions working for NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program. The film was nominated for dozens of awards, including the Academy Award for Best Picture.

The movie event is one of several community Black History Month events KCC is hosting this month focused on the African-American experience. Additional Black History Month events at KCC — all of which are open to the public and will take place on the College’s North Avenue campus — include:
