Brooklyn, NY, January 11, 2019 — Yes Virginia, there are women superheroes. The marvel universe is about to become a lot more marvelous with their upcoming release of Captain Marvel. A true hero and perfect role model for little girls this film is bound to inspire the imagination and remind young girls that they can reach higher, further, and go faster. This is why Pearl Fields of NubianFlix™ and Anthony Lockett-Larsen have decided to spearhead a new campaign with the #CaptainMarvelChallenge. This Captain Marvel Challenge will help raise funds so they can take underprivileged children to see the film when it is release in March during women’s history month. Just like with their successful campaign for the Black Panther movie that raised $10,000 the aim is to raise another $10,000, this will allow them to take various charities and public schools to see the film. Reaching this goal will help them to provide snacks and movie tickets to children and their chaperones in Walt Whitman middle school in Brooklyn, Children of Promise NYC in Brooklyn, She Wins! in East Orange, NJ and the Sierra House of East Orange, NJ.
NubianFlix™ is a brand-new streaming service that will be launching soon in beta in a few months. It will feature works that are created by, feature, and/or target members of the African Diaspora and is currently accepting submissions via their website at www.nubianflix.com. Even though the company has not officially launched yet Pearl felt it was important to support these films because they represent a significant turning point which shows that women and people of color can do well at the box office and she hopes that their success will lead to more film opportunities for women and people of color both in front of and behind the camera.
The children will have their own red-carpet experience in the hopes that they will have a memory that will last for a long time. So far, they’ve raised $110 towards their goal. If you would like to support their campaign you can contribute by going to their page here gf.me/u/pri7tq.
