TDE Is Sending Nearly 1,000 Kids to See 'Black Panther' in Watts

February 16, 2018

Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith—Top Dawg Entertainment label head—is sending nearly 1,000 kids from three Watts housing projects to see Black Panther this weekend for free, TMZ reports.

Top wanted to be sure that kids who live in Watts got a chance to see Black Panther. In a joint effort between himself and Interscope Records, they bought out five shows in three different theaters, so kids from Nickerson Gardens, Jordan Downs, and Imperial Courts Projects could watch the film. The kids will get transported to the theaters by busses given by the Los Angeles Unified School District. In order to reserve a seat, the kids have to visit the housing authority office at any one of those housing developments.

Black Panther has had a historic run, and the movie has yet to be released in America. According to The Guardian, the film made £2.67 million (about $3.74 million) in the UK on its opening day on Feb. 13, making it the highest-grossing single day film at the UK box office in 2018.
