BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez earns Emmy nomination!

Posted by Goldwater, Attie, Gordon (Creator)

Dear Kickstarter supporters, 

We are thrilled to tell you that our documentary, BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez, has been nominated for a 2017 Emmy Award! While we have had amazing audience response at festivals and a widely watched broadcast on PBS' America Reframed, this honor is still a wonderful and very welcome surprise. 

On October 5, we will be at the News and Documentary Emmy Award Ceremony at Lincoln Center, proudly representing one of five films nominated in the category of Arts and Culture Documentary. We are especially proud be in the same category as Iris, Meet the Patels, Miss Sharon Jones, and Thanks for Playing--amazing films all. 

This is a huge honor for us, a wonderful tribute to Sonia, and an achievement for all of you whose generous contributions helped make this possible. As always, our deepest appreciation for your support. We'll keep you posted! Barbara, Janet and Sabrina
