Dante` James, formerly of Grand Rapids, is working on a project to produce, film and tell the story of Huey P. Newton and the Black Panther Party. He is being commissioned by the Huey P. Newton Foundation to go through their original archives and film footage and tell their side of their story of the freedom fighter and the national organization he co-founded and its work in Oakland, CA, then around the country. Please check out the link, below and, if you see benefit, share with your network. They need to raise $40,000 to do the initial work, then, seek major funding for the complete documentary.
Producer/director Dante James plans to complete the film by the summer of 2013. The producers are seeking investments from independent, private sources and start up funding through Kickstarter, the online financing website.
