Black Heroes Matter in 502

Black Panther Youth

Movie Experience

Wibby’s Foundation, in collaboration with Black Lives Matter, Deeply Rooted, and West Louisville Dream Team will host Black Heroes Matter in 502.

On February 24th, we will offer urban youth from the west Louisville area a FREE special screening of Marvel's Black Panther. Many of these youth stem from low-income households or have limited transportation and aren't often afforded opportunities such as this. We will be providing transportation to and from the theater and lunch. We feel moved to eliminate these barriers and make this experience accessible to everyone! 

 

Marvel’s Black Panther is anticipated to be a revolutionary film that will have a lasting impact on Black youth around the world who rarely see empowering examples of Black superheroes within the confines of African cultures.  Our objective is to make this screening a memorable experience for all attendees. 

 

Your donation in part will serve as a sponsorship for over 80 youth and will help to cover the cost of the following: 

• Movie Tickets
• Transportation
• Snacks and Lunch
• Grab Bag (and items)
• Inspirational Discussion Forum hosted by Dr. Ricky L. Jones, of University of  Louisville, Department of Pan-African Studies, Dept. Chair as well as other facilitated activities.  
• Administrative fees
• Additional funds collected will be used to support activities for west Louisville Youth 

 

We’re so excited about this movie, and the possibilities that will be produced. If you have any questions, please contact Shaun Spencer or Lowell Harper at 502.532.1824 or info@wibbysfoundation.org.
