Crowdfunding Favorites

There are thousands of live crowdfunding projects to discover every week, so we’re here to show you the best ones. In this bimonthly newsletter, we are highlighting Black creators and their projects. We, as BackerKit, stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We stand against racism and anti-blackness, police brutality, and the systemic racial injustices that the Black community faces. You can read our statement here.

ENDS TOMORROW! King of Kings takes an in-depth look at the life and legacy of Edward Jones, an African American who rose to the heights of financial and political prominence in post-Depression era Chicago. In shaping the destiny of a city, he could not, however, escape his skin color. In conflict with both the mob and the Feds, he was forced into a life on the run. In this film, his granddaughter uncovers the lasting repercussions of his untold story, not only within her family, but also for Chicago’s South Side where he once embodied the American dream.
