What's Next for
If we haven't shouted it loud enough already, we're happy to share that our latest film,
Flying Free: The Bessie Coleman Story is now complete!
We kicked off this milestone with a premiere screening at the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC where our founder, Karyn Parsons, discussed the film and the need to share lesser known stories of African American triumph to people everywhere.
From February 16-24, the Museum will also present daily screenings of three Sweet Blackberry shorts, as part of Family Programs during Midwinter Recess.
In addition to the premiere screenings of the film, we are also working on completing all Kickstarter rewards for members who have yet to receive items. We will be sure to keep you up-to-date on all things Bessie and Sweet Blackberry related as we continue to pull together our distribution plan.
Now that the film is complete, we're sure the big question everyone about concerns the organization's next steps. We're currently working on a plan to have the film available to stream online as well as make the film available for teachers and community resource centers around the country. If you are a community leader looking to bring Bessie to your town, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We are also working on developing educational materials associated with the film including a teaching guide, puzzle and games.
Again, we cannot thank you enough for your continued support of this project. We could not have completed it without the support of all of you!
