About the Event
Hero Nation needs your support to fund a FREE special screening of Marvel's Black Panther for Black youth in Ypsilanti, MI, on February 16 at 10AM. Many of these youth stem from low-income households and aren't often afforded opportunities such as this. We feel moved to eliminate these financial barriers and make this experience accessible for everyone.
Marvel’s Black Panther is anticipated to be a revolutionary film that will have a lasting impact on Black youth around the world who rarely see empowering examples of Black superheroes within the confines of African cultures.
What You're Funding
Our objective is to make this screening a memorable experience for all attendees. Each donation will serve as a sponsorship for over 100 youth and will pay for the following:
- Administrative fees
- A special gift for each student
Any additional funding will go towards other Hero Nation programs and events like:
- Next year's comic-con. This event will have the following:
- FREE admission
- FREE toys for youth
- FREE comic books
- FREE food for all attendees
- FREE workshops
- FREE inclusive video game tournaments for low-income youth
- And more
What is Hero Nation?
Hero Nation-Ypsilanti is a free, family-friendly comic-con that celebrates superheroes and diversity, with the mission that everyone has a hero inside of themselves that deserves to be celebrated.
