More than 300 Milwaukee Public School students from Milwaukee Excellence Charter School and Elm Creative got a chance to see the Marvel movie Black Panther this week.
The general consensus of excitement and hopes for learning spread throughout the student body before the movie.
Marcus North Shore in Mequon made sure hundreds of popcorn bags and cups for soda were at the ready. Compassionate Personal Care Services bought out three theaters for the students to watch the film. The local home health care company did this in honor of Black History Month.
Francesca Hoskins, the Marketing Director for Compassionate Personal Care Services, says the company's aim is to help the entire community.
"It's a blessing that we're able to do it, and then," says Hoskins,"it's great to just give them some kind of exposure. Even though their friends my not be able to see it, but they can also tell their friends how awesome the movie was."
Hoskins says Black Panther shows kids positive representations of black man and women. This movie will inspire kids to do and be better.
