The viral hashtag #BlackPantherChallenge, started by New York’s Frederick Joseph, inspired people everywhere to help raise money for kids to see Marvel’s highly-anticipated movie, Black Panther. Thanks to Mr. Joseph the children at the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem get to see the movie at no cost.
Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Frederick Joseph to her talk show. Joseph, whose GoFundMe raised over $42,000 to help kids at the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem see Marvel’s Black Panther. She announced that the show would cover the cost of the screening, so the $42,000 Joseph raised would go to the Boys & Girls Club, to use “in any way you want.” She also found out that Joseph himself is in debt, so Shutterfly offered a generous $20,000 check to help him.
