Boys and girls across the country have been waiting with baited breath to see the new Marvel movie, Black Panther. Thanks to a grassroots viral effort created by one New York native, tons of children will see the movie for free.
Frederick Joseph started a GoFundMe campaign earlier this year with the hopes of sending a few kids from his local Boys & Girls Club in Harlem to see the film. Little did he know that his efforts would raise almost $50,000 that helped send over 400 dollars to see the historic film. In addition to reaching his goal, Joseph inspired GoFundMe to create additional campaigns to accomplish the same goal worldwide.
Check out, in their own words, as reported by ABC News, what Black Panther means to these boys and girls of all ages and races.
