THE SPACE RACE skillfully weaves together the stories of Black astronauts seeking to break the bonds of social injustice to reach for the stars, including Guion Bluford, Ed Dwight and Charles Bolden. Filmmakers Diego Hurtado de Mendoza and Lisa Cortés profile the pioneering Black pilots, scientists and engineers who joined NASA to serve their country in space, even as their country failed to achieve equality for them back on Earth. The bright dreams of Afrofuturism become reality in this powerful film, forever redefining what “the right stuff” looks like, while giving us new heroes to celebrate and a fresh history to explore.
