I just wanted to share this again, in case you missed it last week:

Beverly Jenkins Launches GoFundMe to Bring Novel to the Big Screen

While Alice Walker’s “The Color Purple,” Zora Neale Hurston’s “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” Toni Morrison’s “Beloved” and more recently, Steve Harvey’s “Think Like A Man,” are books that have transitioned to successful feature films — this is an industry rarity. Many Black romance novels are bound by the paper and hardback covers they’re given and their stories are never told three dimensionally.

With a GoFundMe page, a goal of $100,000 and only 30 days to reach it, Jenkins and Bolling have called on fans for their support.
