Thanks to a heads up in Links from yesterday to a story in a Ms. Magazine blog about a Kickstarter campaign for an animated children's film about celebrated ballerina and dancer Janet Collins, who was the first African-American ballerina to dance at the Metropolitan Opera. The film will be narrated by Chris Rock.
The original target was $75K, which they surpassed, and now they are going for a stretch goal of $10K, for a total of $85K. The campaign ends tomorrow, Friday, 18 July 2014 at 8am PDT/5am EDT.
The animation and art shown from prior Sweet Blackberry films in the project video is terrific.
Just in case you're thinking of contributing, there are two different rewards options in the $25 category: digital downloads of all three Sweet Blackberry films or a DVD of the Janet Collins film.
