Ahead of the 2021 release of ‘CANDYMAN,’ Universal Pictures and Monkeypaw Productions launched a dynamic social impact campaign that kicked off with ‘for us, by us’ screenings across the country. Those events were just the beginning – the companies built a website to support the campaign that included resources, commissioned art pieces, an educational companion guide, and a roundtable conversation with leading Black academics, activists and thought leaders.
To help audiences to go deeper into the themes of CANDYMAN, Monkeypaw Productions and Universal Pictures collaborated with Langston League, an educational curriculum firm that specializes in culturally responsive instruction materials, to create The Official Companion Guide: An Exploration of Themes. With special insight from educators, Professor Tananarive Due and Professor John Jennings, this tool helps fans explore the legend of CANDYMAN and Black culture.
