GoFundMe To Help Inner City Kids In NYC See 'Black Panther' Takes Off In A Big Way
4 months ago

 Frederick Joseph, a mentor for the Boys and Girls Club started a GoFundMe drive to bring New York kids to see Marvels's Black Panther when it hits the theaters this February and stars  Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan,  Lupita Nyong'o,  Angela Bassett, and Forest Whitaker 

 The GoFundMe page reads:

“The release of Marvel’s film the Black Panther is a rare opportunity for young students (primarily of color) to see a black major cinematic and comic book character come to life. This representation is truly fundamental for young people, especially those who are often underserved, unprivileged, and marginalized both nationally and globally.”


The goal of $10,000 was smashed and as of the writing of this story, funds are over $36,000. That is going to make for a lot of happy kids! The excitement over BVlack Panther has been building and it pre-sale tickets for much anticipated Civil War.  

Twitter was all about it. 

Even Chelsea Clinton was getting in on the campaign. 

Of course there were a few naysayers. It's the internet after all. 

Fredrick Joseph, the creator of the fund, responded in the best way. 

Other communities are jumping on board for the Black Panther Challenge.
