Thank you for your donation!
Ultra Wave Media is in the process of expanding our award winning documentary film 41st & Central: The Untold Story Of The L.A. Black Panthers (Pan African Film Festival Audience Award, National Black Arts Festival Atlanta) into a multi-episodic documentary series with the goal of distributing it on a large platform. This film project will be the life story of Alprentice “Bunchy” Carter and Geronimo Jijaga Pratt. At a time when the country is confronting questions about racial bias more than ever, the Black Panthers mission to promote equal human rights for minorities is as relevant today as it was in the 60’s-70’s. Our project will preserve the Southern California Chapter’s legacy.
This legacy includes– the Free Breakfast for School Children Program which began with the L.A. Chapter then spread nationwide feeding over 10k children every day, the Sickle Cell Anemia Education Program which included free home testing, the Free Groceries and Clothing Program, the organizing of Black Student Unions at colleges and high schools throughout Southern California, and other free social service programs that are now part of the mainstream of American life.
Your donation will go towards continuing the production and pre-production of ALL 8 EPISODES! Thank you.
