Final Day: Support Ella Jenkins Film!
Subject: Final Day: Support Ella Jenkins Film!|
Date: 29 Sep 14 - 11:31 PM
Just a quick note to remind you that today is the final day to pledge support to the Indiegogo campaign for the film about the life and work of Ella Jenkins!
Ella just turned 90, and is still at it, singing songs and teaching kids and families all over the place. But did you know she also broke down barriers of gender and race, worked in the Manhattan Project lab at the University of Chicago and integrated more than one workplace, including Chicago television?
Check out the campaign site, and pledge if you're so inclined. Even if you can't donate, please share the campaign so that we can get this project made before time runs out:
Ella's touched so many lives over nearly 60 years of music-making, I'm certain she plays into the music made by many fellow Mudcats.
