Chattanooga producer holds contest to give high school students tickets to Black Panther
Excitement is growing for Marvel's debut of their Black Panther movie this weekend, and high school students in our area could get the chance to see it for free.
Black Panther director Ryan Coogler says the film is more than just superheroes - it's a movie that deals with real world problems, including race and slavery.
On Monday, we spoke with Chattanooga-based producer & actor Dylan Kussman, who is giving away tickets to the film - with a catch.
High school students can take part in the Black Panther 'Define a Hero' challenge.
It's a one-page essay or a one-minute video about a hero in your life.
Kussman is partnering with entrepreneur Vincent Phipps for the contest.
"It's a real inspiring story," says Kussman, "and we want kids in Chattanooga to have an opportunity to see it, especially who might not normally have the resources to go see it themselves. It's important and it's a moment to celebrate."
Submit your essay or video to firstname.lastname@example.org. Kussman says the submission due date is this Thursday, February 15th.
