As we were trying to figure out how to send some kids from our community to see the Black Panther Movie for free , Desiree Peterkin Bell stepped up to the plate to sponsor 60 kids from the community to see Black Panther on Thursday night.We thank you for this and we look forward to hanging out with the students on Thursday Night. With all the negativity on social media and in the world , I think its very important that we show the students positive images of African Americans.
