Lupita Nyong’o Sponsored 600 Kenyan Students To See ‘Black Panther’

0

The #BlackPantherChallenge is an ongoing online challenge created by a New York resident Frederick Joseph. The aim of the challenge is to take more kids to watch Black Panther in the cinemas in the bid to expose them to all the representation in the film.

Many celebrities have taken up the challenge, and Lupita took it a notch further by sponsoring 600 students in her hometown: Kisumu, Kenya to watch the film.

Speaking about why she sponsored children from her hometown on Instagram, Lupita said:

“I joined the #BlackPantherChallenge and sponsored 600 schoolchildren to watch the film in Kisumu, Kenya with my mother’s help.

I wanted kids from my hometown to see the positive images reflected in the film and superheroes that they can relate to on the big screen.

No matter where you live, you can help make this happen for more children who can’t afford to see the movie.”
After seeing what not just the titular superhero can do, but also the bevy of ass-kicking ladies who help him save Wakanda, it’s hard not to leave Black Panther feeling like you too can save the world!
