The nationwide “Black Panther Challenge” has Black youth excited the new movie, premiering, Feb. 16. But it’s the Black celebrities and others who have committed funds to get African American youth to see the Marvel movie for free.
Over at Aunt Cheryl’s Café in Braddock, Cheryl Johnson has accepted the #BlackPantherChallenge. Johnson, along with local resident Cathy Turner-Welsh, and House district candidate Summer Lee, are looking to take 100 children from the Woodland Hills community to see the Black Panther movie at the Penn Hills Cinema. Thus, a gofundme campaign began to raise $750—$500 for the price of the movie tickets, and $250 for the cost of renting a bus. Right now, they’ve raised $550 of the $750. Those who wish to make a donation and get them to that $750 mark (just $200 more is needed) can visit http://www.gofundme.com/acmf4-black-panther-challenge. More details can be attained by searching “Aunt Cheryl’s” or “Cheryl Johnson” on Facebook.
Cathy Turner-Welsh is the mother of 16-year-old Jerame Turner, who died in December due to gun violence. She then began an organization, “Moms for the Misunderstood,” and has been involved in the Woodland Hills community, working on initiatives to help local students.
