Uplift!

What Frederick Joseph has done for the youth in Harlem is noble and great. Campaigns like these are necessary and imperative! I want to do the same for the youth in Queens,NY.

Growing up in Queens,NY my parents tried their best to keep us involved in extracurricular activities in the arts and sports. Fast forward, I am now a professional actor who was fortunate enough to be apart of the "Black Panther" film. In my youth I could only imagine an opportunity like that. Unfortunately, many young people don’t have these opportunities.

The amount of light this film will shine is immeasurable. I am facilitating this intitiative because I believe it is important to shine this light on the youth. Light which will show them that despite where they are from or how rough it may be, they too have the opportunity to be great, be kings, be queens and heroes in the world around them.

Please join me and help to bring over 200 youth of color to see our modern heroes on the big screen, during this special time of Black History Month. I will be reponsible for withdrawing the funds and making sure they are used to fulfill this goal! 

The children are the future, our task is to build the bridge for them to cross.

Thank you.
