$4,500 of $3,500 goal
Marvel's, "Black Pather," is a great cinematic reflection of African Diasporic greatness. This film, unlike many other science fiction and action packed movies with 1 or 2 characters of color, depicts an entire cast of color. This afro representation in media is essential for youth of color to be exposed to their African history and retain positive images of blackness that goes beyond the prescribed drug dealer and tempest roles.
African American Art and Culture Complex in the Fillmore district of San Francisco, CA, is a beacon of restoring the African Diasporan culture through arts and activism.

Thank you all for joining in on this venture, please contact Ciara Swan at firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information and concerns.
Once again we appreciate all of your generous support in helping us reach and exceed our Black Panther Movie fund goal. I have attached a few photos. We are still scheduling movie visits for additional groups and community partners. We will update the Go Fund Me sight in the coming weeks, when we get more groups.
I look forward to sharing our experiences with you all, soon!
Just an update, although we have exceeded our goal of $3,500; we are waiting for the check to come to us and will then arrange to take our youth to see the movie, hopefully some time next week.
GoFundMe, has taken an exceptional amount of those proceeds with their respective fees. However, even with deductions, we are still able to take over 100 youth and adults to see the film. This is no small feat and we could not have done it without all of your generous support!
I will be updating our campaign with photos in the coming weeks.
Blessings to you all!
Youth Program Coordinator
THANK YOU ALL so much for allowing us to exceed our $3,500.00 goal. With your generous donations we will be taking over 100 youth from the Western Addition, San Francisco area to see the Black Panther Movie.
This a huge deal to send so many students of color to see positive representations of themselves and the Diasporic culture on the larger screen!
I will be updating the campaign with photos and sending receipts to our respective donors.
Once again, we humbly appreciate all your support and effort into making this campaign a reality.
