Help YEG Youth See 'Black Panther'

Black Lives Matter Edmonton is partnering with The Come-Up to send 100 Black youth to see the film ‘Black Panther.’

We believe in promoting Black excellence, so it is incredibly important that our youth not only see themselves on the big screen, but recognize themselves as the creators and superheroes that they are.

We hope to fundraise $2726 by this friday. The breakdown of costs include:

$20 per ticket + food x 100 youth = $2,000

$6.5 round trip bus fair x 100 youth = $650

Gofundme processing fee 2.9% = ~$76.85

The screening will take place on February 19 and will include

• The screening of Black Panther;

• African and Caribbean catering, provided at the Theatre;

• Photo Booth with props

• After party at Rec Room (South): a community-driven panel discussion;

• Art Showcase

• African and Caribbean Drumming & Entertainment in celebration of Black History Month and more!

Black youth will be selected through The Come Up’s partnership with local Edmonton schools.

YEG The Come Up works towards empowering, sharing voices of young peoples of African and Afro-Caribbean descent. By coming together to discuss/consider youth-relevant topics & issues through the inclusion of diverse cultures and experiences, Y.E.G provides a means for building and supporting identity, collective and self-awareness and community.

Once the fundraiser is completed, I will send the funds to The Come Up and work with them to select the youth and to pay the theatre.
