On behalf of everyone on the team making this initiative happen and everyone able to see Black Panther or A Wrinkle In Time because of sponsors like you, Thank You!

How do I apply for a Voyage Through Time (tickets to see A Wrinkle In Time)?
Simply fill out this form. You can apply for up to two tickets if you plan to see “A Wrinkle In Time” opening weekend or within the first week of release. We’ll send your tickets directly to the email address you provide on the form once funds become available for your sponsorship.

How do I sponsor someone’s Voyage Through Time?
First of all, thanks a ton for making this initiative possible. Second, please fill out this form to let us know that you’re putting extra in the collection plate to sponsor someone’s voyage and follow the links at the end of the form to complete your donation.

But what about other Black cinematic masterpieces?
We started with “Black Panther” and thanks to about 250 sponsors we were able to offer more than 300 passports to Wakanda!
This is just the beginning of our quest to lessen the burden of representation and make Black art accessible to all of us regardless of economic status.

After “A Wrinkle In Time” we’ll continue this initiative throughout 2018 for other films helmed by Black creatives. We all know the power of Black dollars and showing up for our own; let’s show Ava DuVernay and the “A Wrinkle In Time” the same love and support at the box office that we showed the cast and crew of “Black Panther.

Why is this so important?
Maybe you’ve seen the posts shaming those who dared to consider bootlegging one of the most anticipated films of our time (Black Panther); you felt the twinge of internal conflict because you know the burden of representation means the success of the first Black superhero film is make or break but a trip to Wakanda could break the bank.

We get it. We all know the pain of having to choose between rent and the consumption of empowering and socially innovative entertainment– a form of escapism for some, self-care for others. And we believe that economic status should not prevent folks from participating in culture in this way. All Black people, regardless of income, deserve to see ourselves visually represented in ways that are affirmed with dignity.

Dear Black Arts Visibility Project, I saw the movie a few nights ago with close friends. Low income Black youth in particular deserve to see this film, to let their imagination and spirits travel to Wakanda, so thank you so much for doing this work.
