Letura Idigma has a GoFundMe page so that she can take as many underprivileged kids to see the movie Black Panther wants to use that money to take aside from being a billion–dollar hit, she says there's a deeper meaning to the movie that you might not know.

Letura Idigima wants as many kids to see the black panther movie as possible.

"It's important for a lot of black students," says Idigima "a lot of young women to come see the movie and hopefully it pushes them to conquer the world when they grow–up"

She's started a go fund me page, raising money to take kids to see the movie who otherwise may not have the opportunity or money to do so.

Part of the reason the movie is getting so much buzz is because it is the first marvel movie to star an all black cast, and Letura says it's a big deal for children to see superheroes who look like them.

"I think it's important for students to go to this movie," says Idigima "and I know as adults we kind of think of well it's a Marvel, its action whatever not super important, but it's all about representation from the black cast members to the women in power in the movie."

This is not the first story of people raising money to take kids to see Black Panther. A GoFundMe page in Harlem has raised over $50,000 for the Boys and Girls club of Harlem to see the film. Just like the superheroes they see soaring on the screen, the hope is that this movie can push the younger generation of Lincolnites to new heights.

"It's important for a lot of black students," added Idigima "a lot of young women to come see the movie and hopefully it pushes them to conquer the world when they grow–up"

Letura doesn't want to stop with just this movie, she hopes that this starts a chain reaction here in Lincoln

"I'm really hoping that this kicks into people brains that maybe we need to figure out different free activities emphasis on the word free for our students."
