28 Feb She’s Happy Hair & She’s Happy Foundation Takes 400 Inner-City Youth to See “Black Panther”
The Disney-Marvel movie Black Panther continues to break records at the box office and She’s Happy Hair & She’s Happy Foundation are making sure that a group of high school students in Houston’s most poverty stricken areas will have an opportunity to experience the film.
Academy Award- and Emmy Award-nominated actress Angela Bassett sends a special heart-felt pre-recorded message to the students from Yates, Booker T. Washington, Worthing, Madison and North Forest High Schools; who will be in attendance at AMC Lowes 11225 Fountain Lake Stafford, TX 77477 on March 2, 2018. The 18th movie in the Marvel franchise is the first big-budget superhero movie to have an African-American director and a predominantly black cast. The film has already surpassed over $700 million at the global box office after several weeks; that is considered a major deal!
It is such a major deal that She’s Happy Hair CEO; Warren Broadnax wanted students in the inner city to see a movie with black characters that are strong and empowered. “We are excited in the black community to see a superhero that is out there doing something positive and it gives our kids something amazing to look up to; versus the violence they see every day in their neighborhoods then again on the big screen. This is considered to be extremely powerful on so many levels.” Broadnax stated. It is so important that our youth today have positive role models in real life and on the screen.
