As we prepare to watching the Wakandan King take the big screens ,the reality in our city Hamillton is that many kids will have to choose between their bus passes, or meals for the week, and watching this movie. Let’s come together to ensure every kid has the chance to see this Black Panther.
“Black Panther” features a superhero/ royalty member named T’Challa that is enriched with African culture, not only is he a hero but this character is also a scientist and strategist. This shows audiences that people of color can also be superheroes and royalty, it brings about the bigger picture that people of color, especially the youth, are more than just a sidekick; they’re accepted, strong, intelligent, powerful, and have the ability to change the world for the better, just like this Marvel superhero.
New York man wants to make sure a key demographic doesn’t miss out on the African superhero’s exploits: kids of color. “I knew I wanted to do something for the children, especially of Harlem, because it was a community primarily of color,”

A local writer and activist Andray Domise inspired by the Black Panther set up a fund so youth in his community could see the superhero movie. But the response was been so overwhelming, what’s left will go to encouraging black youth to get into television and film careers.
Last February, Sheereen organized a Black History Month event for her family, in which they dressed up as black historical figures. From children as young as 4 years old, to adults. The event served as a fun, educational and empowering way of paying homage to our ancestors. Sheereen hopes to further empower black youth by providing them with the opportunity to see positive and powerful representation of themselves on the big screen.
Black History Month! It is about forging forward with renewed vision and hope for the future and setting an example for our young people so that they will have the determination and fortitude to be all they could be. It is time to break off the shackles of indolence and mediocracy and purposefully create our destiny. That is why I am endeavouring to take 100 young people to see the Black Panther.
