Black Panther GoFundMe lets Harlem kids see Marvel superhero film .
An online fundraising has smashed its $10,000 (£7,400) target in an effort to help young children in New York City see Marvel's landmark superhero movie Black Panther when it's released in February. The campaign, created by New Yorker Frederick Joseph, raised $34,521 in five days for The Boys and Girls Club of Harlem (BGCHarlem), which offers "a safe, positive, and supportive place for youth". Marvel Studios' Black Panther is the first mainstream solo movie of the modern era to star a black superhero. It follows Chadwick Boseman's debut as the character in 2016's Captain America: Civil War. The film's release offers "a rare opportunity for young students (primarily of coluor) to see a black major cinematic and comic book character come to life", states the GoFundMe campaign page. "This representation is truly fundamental for young people, especially those who are often underserved, unprivileged, and marginalized both nationally and globally." The page then quotes an article from The Root on the importance of the film. "Black Panther remains socially and culturally relevant because it imagines a world where black people continually triumph over the influences of capitalism, Western imperialism and white supremacy," writes Clarkisha Kent.
