CRISPUS ATTUCKS COMMUNITY CENTER TO CELEBRATE JUNETEENTH WITH SHORT FILMS
“SINCERELY, CRISPUS ATTUCKS” TO DEBUT SUNDAY, JUNE 13
Lancaster, Pa. – Lancaster County has a rich history of Black excellence and leadership. In celebration of Juneteenth, the Crispus Attucks Community Center, a program of Community Action Partnership of Lancaster, is proud to present “Sincerely, Crispus Attucks,” a series of four short films produced by Lancaster‐based MAKE/FILMS.
Each film showcases three generations of Black leaders – a future leader, a rising leader, and a legacy leader – who read heartfelt letters to those who have inspired them. These leaders include Ron Ford, Ismail Smith‐Wade‐El, Joshua Hunter, and Danielle Woods, among others, plus four dynamic youth from the School District of Lancaster.
The films are made possible by 27 generous community sponsors, including Woodstream Corporation, the presenting sponsor. The films will premiere on Sunday, June 13 at www.caplanc.org/juneteenth, which includes a link to make contributions to the Center’s important work in the community.
MAKE/FILMS is a full‐service video production company based in Downtown Lancaster, PA that produces videos for a variety of local, regional, and national clients.
