A former student at New York University (NYU) has embarked on an honorable mission to help children from low-income families in Harlem get the opportunity to see this year’s most anticipated film in theatres.

Frederick Joseph, the NYU alum, started a GoFundMe campaign last week with the intention of giving black children who do not have the opportunity to go out to the movies often a chance to see the first-ever Marvel superhero flick about a team of characters saving the world who look like them.

Initially, Joseph only set out to raise $10,000 dollars in funds to finance his valiant cause. However, in just three days, Joseph was able to surpass his initial goal by $3,000 dollars. He was overwhelmed with happiness after seeing how people wanted to help. In an exclusive interview with The Root, Joseph talked about his endeavor.
