We need to raise $20,000 AT LEAST in 30 days in order to complete season 1 of "For Colored Boys, REDEMPTION" on schedule.
$20,000 is our minimum goal, but we're aiming to surpass that amount!!
Once we reach that goal, please keep spreading the word and giving anything you can. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!
Independent filmmaking is an uphill battle for most who seek to accept the challenge. Telling the complex stories of black men that responsibly celebrate their full humanity takes support from THE PEOPLE. The funding of this Indiegogo project is critical if we are to go into production next month (April 2013) and release the entire first season of "For Colored Boys, REDEMPTION" this spring!
SEASON ONE IS INCOMPLETE and we need YOUR support to make the rest of this season a reality! We can’t do it without help from the community we serve!
"For Colored Boys" is soul-stirring dramatic web series written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Stacey Muhammad. Seven seasons of "For Colored Boys" tell stories about seven Black men who are faced with redemption, truth, love, fear, hope, endings, and new beginnings. The web series is inspired by the critically-acclaimed 1975 choreopoem 'For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf' by Ntozake Shange.
The first season of "For Colored Boys," entitled REDEMPTION, follows the life of Benjamin Boyd, Sr. Upon release from prison, Benjamin seeks to reunite with his family by rekindling his relationship with his wife Lisa and reassuming his role as father to their teenage daughter Sidney, and 20 year old son, E. Benjamin's life begins to spiral out of control as he suffers from Post Incarceration Syndrome (PIC) and struggles to find his place in the world again.
