Embassy Screens Blockbuster Movie Hidden Figures

United States Embassy Banjul’s Public Diplomacy section hosted the first-ever Gambian screening of the blockbuster Hollywood film, “Hidden Figures” at the Chief of Mission’s Residence in Banjul on May 4.

The screening brought together science students from the University of The Gambia, U.S. exchange program alumni, with members of the diplomatic corps and the embassy community.

The Ambassador commented on one of the most significant messages of this movie –women’s empowerment. She said Hidden Figures is a classic example of the milestones that can be achieved when women are empowered, “I hope the movie inspires you to create an enabling environment of equal opportunity and rights for Gambian youth to achieve their greatest dreams,” she remarked.
