Fundraiser for “Blackdom”

In February we talked about the documentary, “Blackdom.” Filmmaker Vince McDaniel is creating a feature film documentary about the New Mexico town. There is currently a GoFundMe campaign to support this project. You can learn more by visiting the film’s Facebook page and you can read our earlier post here.

If you would like to show support for the creation of this film, there will be a fundraiser with special guest, actor Bokeem Woodbine. Details here.

Our tale “BLACKDOM” is about a black college-educated school teacher in the South tired of witnessing the daily degradation of his people. Feeling powerless to do anything about it, he begins to encourage African-Americans to report and challenge abuses in the Jim Crow-era South. After being run out of town by the KKK , he journeys to the New Mexico territory and establishes an all black town which flourishes during the turn of the 19th century. True New Mexico history!

When:  Saturday, March 26, 2016 from 6 – 9pm

Where: Vernon’s Speakeasy, 6845 Los Ranchos Rd NW, Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, NM, United States
