Join Our Wakanda Forever Initiative

Be a superhero and join our campaign. 

On November 10, 2022, we will begin our nationwide tour to take students to see Wakanda Forever and give away scholarships to scholars who need our support. It doesn’t stop there. We will select a student in each city to send to the Go for Yours Dream Experience in Los Angeles. 

You can donate to our general campaign or choose your city of choice to support! The city that raises the most money will send an additional student to the Dream Experience in Los Angeles

ABOUT

In 2018, nationwide donations helped send over 500 students in Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles to Black Panther. During our Black Panther campaign, we were lucky to receive national news headlines and the support of celebrities such as Usher Raymond, TIP “ T. I ” Harris, Lena Waithe, Tina Knowles, Richard Lawson, Lil Rel Howery, Kenny Latimore, and Winston Duke (Lord M’Baku of Black Panther). Their support played an essential role in this initiative.

We are looking forward to announcing this year’s supporters. Follow us on social media for updates!

Our Story

In 2010, Founder Erika R. McCall decided to bring to life the hand-scrawled quotes resting in her journal. While on a plane, 30,000 feet in the air, she wrote three words that, unbeknownst to her, would change the direction of her life, “Go for
Yours.”

Go for Yours started as a published collection of stories about young African Americans brave enough to follow their
dreams. While promoting the message of Go for Yours to various students across the country, Erika noticed a difference
between underprivileged youth and their more privileged peers. Both were equally talented, but one group lacked the
resources they needed to become the best people they were born to be.

Closing the Opportunity Gap
One Student At a Time

According to the Schott Foundation for Public Education, U.S. Department of Education data reveals that the opportunity gap is the greatest crisis facing America’s urban youth. When an opportunity gap is present, there is an unequal amount of resources available for young people living in and attending schools in low-income neighborhoods.
