Rapping legend Snoop Dogg is pitching in on the effort to help children see Marvel’s Black Panther by means of donating his own money to support the cause.
Snoop took to Twitter to reveal that he pitched in money to support the effort to give kids in Harlem a chance to see Marvel’s next big movie, Black Panther. Snoop issued a quick statement about the movie, noting that he thinks it’s important that African-American children have heroes that represent them:
“Yo, shout out to Fredrick Joseph out there in Harlem with that GoFundMe project to get the kids to go see [Black Panther], the new movie by Ryan Coogler. I’m going to donate some money to the cause for the kids to check it out and also I’m going to reach out to the homeboy Ryan Coogler so that we can get an LA version of that so that kids in LA can go see a superhero movie and learn about a real black superhero. Shout out to my main man out there in Harlem doing big things.”

Black Panther is in and of itself a milestone in modern moviemaking in the sense that it’s a big-budget film predominantly starring black actors and actresses. Representation absolutely matters in this day and age, and given that the movie is tracking extremely well, it seems like the film could be the first of many of its kind.
Black Panther will be released on February 16, 2018. The movie features a cast that includes Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa (Black Panther), Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, John Kani as T’Chaka, Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Kilmonger, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, and Winston Duke as M’Baku (Man-Ape). In addition, Atandwa Kani has been cast in an unspecified role.
