We are launching a cowdfunding & donation campaign for both Ackee & Saltfish The Web Series and The Strolling Series.

If everyone who watched the trailer to Ackee & Saltfish donated just £1 we could raise over £20,000.

You can find out exactly how your money will help us at » http://donate.cecileemeke.com «

Essentially it comes down to this, it is already hard to get funding as an artist, period, but when you are trying to get funding for projects that are uncompromisingly by and about black people, it’s extremely difficult.

If everyone who watched Abraham’s episode from the strolling series donated just £1 we could raise way over £15,000.

We want to take strolling everywhere from Paris, to Kampala, to Brooklyn, but we need support to make that a reality. Similarly, we want to make The Web Series Ackee & Saltifsh of the highest quality and we need support for that. Also our actors work for free. We all moan about people selling out and doing shitty roles but these are professional actors and they need to eat and pay rent so support them!

"The place in which I’ll fit will not exist until I make it." - James Baldwin

We are making it. Help us to continue to make dope art, for dope people

María Ligia Chaverra (featured in the video above)

She is a human rights defender in the Afro-Colombian community from Curbaradó River Basin, Las Camelias Humanitarian Zone who is facing threats from both sides of the armed conflict.

A land rights leader, she has faced intimidation and harassment by armed groups, as well as constantly facing risk of displacement from the Colombian state and military.

By establishing Humanitarian Zones, María and other land rights leaders have been able to denounce such attacks and the theft used to displace communities.

Watch the video to learn more about María and the humanitarian zones of the Curbaradó and Jiguamiando basins.

on the pavement
down in America
is revealing the bodies
of innocent black boys.
