Friday, February 03, 2017
On Saturday January 28, 2017 a federal judge granted a request by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and other groups for a nationwide temporary injunction to block the deportation of people stranded in U.S. airports under President Donald J. Trump's Executive Order banning entry to the U.S. by Muslims from seven countries. Arguing the case was Horace Mann School alumnus Lee Gelernt '80 who worked with colleagues around the clock to try to halt the effects of the Executive Order signed by the President the day before.

HM's Black Parents Union's Sixth Annual Film Showing Inspires the Community
Wednesday, February 01, 2017
"Hidden Figures" a film about three African American women mathematicians who broke race and gender barriers to contribute vitally to U.S. efforts to launch an astronaut into space, has been inspiring audiences worldwide since its December 25, 2016 release. On January 22, 2017 about 275 members of the Horace Mann School community joined the millions of viewers engaged by the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson who worked for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) before and during the height of the space race in the 1960s. Despite the significant contributions they made to this country's space program they were largely unknown until the 2016 publication of Margot Lee Shetterly's book Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race upon which the Twentieth Century Fox film is based. Horace Mann School students, faculty members, parents and alumni gathered to see the film at NYC's AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 movie theater at the invitation of HM's Black Parents Union (BPU) and the HM Office of Diversity.
