Help Steel kids See "Black Panther

Media plays an important role in shaping the way we understand race and ethnicity as part of our history, our social institutions, and our everyday lives. Moreover, positive black representation on television and film screens plays an important role in the struggle against the anti-black bias we face in this country. For many, viewing self-determination means realizing self-determination.

After decades of asking for a modern black superhero, we finally got what we've asked for!  There is no doubt that it is a rare opportunity for young people, especially those who are often marginalized. Help send the over 500 amazing students at Edward T. Steel Elementary School! to see The Black Panther movie. 

Steel contacted is UA Main Street 6, which is located on 3720 Main St, Manayunk, PA 19127. The price to rent an entire theater is about $10.28 per person. our goal is to send 100 per day for 5 days.

About Edward Steel Elementary School:
Edward Steel Elementary is home to over 500 students predominately from the Nicetown neighborhood.  These students are Philadelphia's youth, full of potential, unimaginable possibilities and of one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in the city.  Originally the school organized to take 50 students but we think we can do better!  Please give what you can so we can send every child for this historic movie event.
