The 16th Strike Documentary
My name is Toni "Alika" Hickman, and I am a young stroke survivor, two brain aneurysms survivor, speaker for the American Heart Association, motivational speaker, hip hop artist with KripHop nation, which is a group of artist with disabilities that travel the world performing and speaking on disability issues. I am also a mother, an activist for minorities, an author, and a poet.
This film is important because as an African living in America, I see that we suffer many pains as a people. We carry the angers of our past on our shoulders, and it reflects in our dealings with each other, our foods and how we eat, and our violence toward one another.
When you contribute to this film, you are actually helping create change in the world. Every race knows of the pains we as a people carry, but we have the potential to be great. This documentary tackles our flaws, but also goes through the steps to correct them.
What We Need & What You Get
In order to get the maximum exposure for a film as potent as this, we need publicity, marketing and promotional materials, The cases, DVDs, Graphics, and printing.We also need distributors.At the lower end of it all, it estimates to about $35,000 dollars.
We are doing give aways, putting some peoples name in the Documentary depending on contribution amount, offering specialties and more!
Even if by some chance our financial goal is not met, we will still award those that have helped through listing their names in documentary and possible specialties depending on finances available.But the listing in the documentary will defenitely be available.
