The organizers behind a movement soaring across the country called the #BlackPantherChallenge want to make sure every kid can see the movie this week.
Black Panther, which hits theaters on Feb. 16, follows T’Challa or Black Panther who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King.
Thousands of people are donating money to Go Fund Me pages to give young people a chance to see the movie. According to organizers behind the Triangle-based challenge, the donated funds will be used to pay for entry of kids and teenagers to see Black Panther, enable them to eat while at the movies and pay for a potential private screening.
