Celebrating The Black Panther movie

$3,044 of $3,000 goal

Writer Joe Robert Cole stated “Black Panther is a historic opportunity to be a part of something important and special, particularly at a time when African Americans are affirming their identities while dealing with vilification and dehumanization. The image of a black hero on this scale is just really exciting.” In the City and surrounding areas of Charleston, we have a large population of young black youth who should be afforded the chance for this monumental movie. I and my inner circle just want to celebrate this historic event while giving a few young kids the ability to enjoy it. This includes providing concessions and special gifts. Any support you offer would be greatly appreciated.

Now about me. My name is Allah Steadman. I’m originally from Brooklyn, NY. I have been in North Charleston, SC since 2005. Since I’ve been here I’ve noticed there are not many programs or places for lower income children to participate in. I myself have saw this firsthand in some of the places I or my family has lived. I believe that someone has to show these children (particularly our young black boys and girls) that there is someone out there who cares about them. That there is more to the world than just the ran down playground or dirt/no grass fields surrounding their neighborhoods. I believe this movie, this moment may be the spark to change someone’s life. All the funds will provide a ticket of entry and concessions for each child. Ages 7 and up. There will be multiple adults there to provide supervision of the event, and maybe even a guest speaker. If this event goes well there could be more down the road, but we have to start somewhere. Why not start with a movie of this magnitude for our people. Withdrawal of funds will come out of a business account I and my wife have, and any left over funds will go towards the next event that will be planned.

So despite the page saying sold out, there are a few tickets left. So if anyone knows a child/teenager who should be afforded the chance to see this movie, please have them contact myself at 347-930-8426. Also if you haven’t yet confirmed your tickets there could be a chance they go back into the pool to be given to someone in need. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let’s show up and show that we care about the youth in our communities. We only have a couple of hours left, let’s get this done. #LetsGoToWakanda #BlackPanther #marvel

Get ready to head to Wakanda tomorrow folks. Thanks again to all of your generous donations and spreading of the word which has made this dream come true. It’s not everyday that we get a chance to impact the loves of the youth. We now have proof that YES we too can be superhero’s. YES we too can write, produce, act and direct in a full feature film. We can love where we come from and be all that we can be.

So come on out tomorrow and let’s show not only the youth someone loves them, but let’s show everyone else that we love our people. And just because we reached our goal don’t mean you can’t still donate and share so we can keep the ball rolling.

Thanks so much to all the supporters. This vision wouldn’t have come to be without you. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. Humbled is a word that comes to mind as well. There’s still time to reach the full goal, so keep spreading the word. To all of those who may be in the area and want a child to attend or may know of a child who needs to attend. A link will be posted in the comments. #thankstoyouall #wakanda #blackpanther #marvel #forthekids #futurekingsandqueens
