This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines
As a whole, America is 13% Black, and 72% white. However, according to a study linking the 2010 census to national park visitors, 95% of people who visit national parks are white, while less than 1% of park visitors are Black or African American.
Hazard is a short narrative film centering on a Black man who takes his brother and 10-year-old son on a camping road trip to the Grand Canyon; this is something they’ve never done. Their car breaks down on the highway and they’re approached by two white police officers. They end up getting their car searched and the situation escalates. No one gets hurt, but the idea is that activities that should be normal (such as taking a road trip or having car trouble) are tainted by the effects of racism. In adversity, the family chooses to continue their journey.
When you support the Hazard campaign, you’re not just telling a story.
As of July 14th, this project has raised $24,000 of their $23,000 goal. This project has 9 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $10, you will get your name in the credits. For a pledge of $25, you will get a link to the film. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/danielbergeson/hazard-0?
