music foundation: In terms of the black community, we do not always see enough positive representation on the big screen, said Marion Ashton of the Sankofa Arts and Music Foundation, the group that started the fundraiser, according to CBC. For the first time in a long time, we have a black superhero. A GoFund Me raised more than 5,000 to send youth to the superhero movie Black Panther. Marion Ashton is with the Sankofa Arts and Music Foundation, the group that organized the event. The fundraiser was part of the Black Panther Challenge, a movement that started in Harlem that raised money to send disadvantaged youth to see the film to celebrate Black History Month. Audrey Neveu/CBC The Sankofa Arts and Music Foundation is a non-profit that works to build healthy communities by providing youth of diverse backgrounds the chance to express themselves through the arts.
