BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez named Kickstarter staff pick!

Posted by Goldwater, Attie, Gordon (Creator)

Yes! After only one week of our Kickstarter campaign, the Kickstarter staff chose to feature the film as a Staff Pick. This is exciting--we know it will bring BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez to many many potential backers who know that crowd-funding is a win-win for donors and for makers. 

WORD OF MOUTH is a kickstarter's best friend, so we are counting on you to forward. This is our first time on the receiving end of a kickstarter campaign, and there are so many upsides: we love that we are getting to connect with so many individuals who will make up the audience once the film is done. 

New rewards! Yesterday we rolled out some exclusive new rewards (below) --from Sonia Sanchez's personal collection: two generous donors will earn 2003 Eboni Literati posters, autographed by Sonia Sanchez and the photographer, Jim Alexander. There was a one of a kind tote bag too, but it has already been grabbed up! 

Check out this clip of Sanchez reading one of 10 haiku to Max Roach at his grave.
