Steve Paul works tirelessly for Philadelphia'...

Steve Paul works tirelessly for Philadelphia's City Hall, and does all the extra credit, too. Help him get students from Edward T. Steel Elementary in to see Black Panther at the UA Main Street 6 in Manayunk. Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Andy Serkis, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Sterling K. Brown. #youneverknow "Media plays an important role in shaping the way we understand race and ethnicity as part of our history, our social institutions, and our everyday lives. Moreover, positive black representation on television and film screens plays an important role in the struggle against the anti-black bias we face in this country. For many, viewing self-determination means realizing self-determination. After decades of asking for a modern black superhero, we finally got what we've asked for! There is no doubt that it is a rare opportunity for young people, especially those who are often marginalized. Help send the over 500 amazing students at Edward T. Steel Elementary School! to see The Black Panther movie. The theater we have contacted is UA Main Street 6, which is located on 3720 Main St, Manayunk, PA 19127. The price to rent an entire theater is about $10.28 per person. our goal is to send 100 per day for 5 days. Cost breakdown: Transportation (two 50 Passenger Van) $400.00 per day for 5 days ($2, 000.00) Movies: -$10.28 per child ($5,551.20) ***Any amount over our goal will go towards fundraising for a second school in North Philly.*** About Edward Steel Elementary School: Edward Steel Elementary is home to over 500 students predominately from the Nicetown neighborhood. These students are Philadelphia's youth, full of potential, unimaginable possibilities and of one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in the city. Originally the school organized to take 50 students but we think we can do better! Please give what you can so we can send every child for this historic movie event."

Join Rich Giordano, Marlene And others!! If you are interested in being involved in a local work project the King Holiday Day of Service on Monday, January 15th, we will have two clean up projects in which people can participate. One group will be cleaning up the stretch of Umbria St. between Domino Lane and Shawmont Ave. If you drive that road at all you know that it is just horribly trash laden. We will have a police escort to help control traffic and a sanitation truck to dispose of what is collected. A second group will be working along the towpath at the old lock house which is also a site where trash is endemic. We will begin working at 9 AM and expect to be done by noon. If you can help on Umbria meet at Umbria and Domino Lane. If you can work on the tow path meet at the bottom of Shawmont Ave. where it connects to Nixon St. Both projects begin at 9 AM
