In solidarity with the current monumental civil rights movement, Black Vortex Cinema and the contributors behind the My Favorite Horror Movie trilogy are signing copies of the books to raise money for Black Lives Matter LA organization.
Over 60 horror creators are expected to sign their respective chapters in the trilogy. Each book will cost $25, which includes free U.S. shipping. The signers are also donating DVDs, Blu-Rays. novels, CDs, stickers, and other goodies to be randomly placed into each shipment. All proceeds will benefit Black Lives Matter LA (BLMLA.ORG), a movement of organized members committing their lives to the Black freedom struggle, while adopting a womanist/Black nationalist framework, with a queer and trans lens.
