Almost 6 months, time to reapply to Express Newark. I completed my short film A Mothers Cry, Newark Speaks 2U became an LLC., there, a media camp was created and is more to come. I am grateful to Express Newark and the partners who so my vision and help me see it through. Now is the second wave, now is the time to create real content and real community base projects. I am creating a crowdfunding campaign under the group ifoundwomen, Newark. I am seeking seed money to purchase equipment to continue doing Newark Speaks 2U work. Hopefully, I am able to get enough funding by the next 6 month come. Thank you Express Newark for your help.
EXPRESS NEWARK OUR FIRST YEAR.
May 5 2017 marks the Grand Opening of Express Newark in the Hahne's & Company Building located in Halsey Street Newark NJ.Dr. Nikki Green Ph-D, was our lecturer for the night. She was amazing. As she told us her story, I thought about all the young people that should have listened to her. Express Newark is a place where learning, teaching and mentoring will take place. I am excited to be part of this wonderful experience. I will be documenting my first six month as one of the residents in this wonderful place. My first project is called “A Mother’s Cry”. The project speaks about mothers losing their sons or daughters to gun and street violence. As a mother who lost her son to a violent crime I see the need to bring awareness and a voice to end the violence occurring every day in our city.
