In June 2013, nine mountaineers will attempt to become the first all-African-American expedition to climb Denali (a.k.a. Mount McKinley) in Alaska. Not only is this team unique in regards to the color of their skin, their goal goes way beyond summiting North America's highest peak. Their ultimate objective is to inspire people of all colors, young and old, to get more engaged in the great outdoors. Why? Because, long-term preservation and on-going stewardship of the world's wild places will require a broader, more inclusive, more colorful constituency.
Our purpose in creating this documentary film is to tell the amazing story of Expedition Denali, but in order to do that we need your help.
Through Kickstarter, the Expedition Denali documentary will raise funds to create a powerful, far-reaching film on the team's journey to the top of North America's loftiest, most iconic summit. From putting a camera team on the mountain with the expedition to producing, promoting and distributing the resulting feature-length film, this project will increase awareness for the allure and rewards of exploring natural environments and make clear that it's high time to welcome all races, all ethnicities—all people—to nature's inspirational outdoor playgrounds.
