When was the last time you saw a bunch of black people hiking up a snow-capped mountain? Never? Well now you have the chance.
“Expedition Denali” is a documentary that follows 9 mountaineers in their attempt to become the first all-African-American team to climb Denali (a.k.a. Mount McKinley) in Alaska, which rises to 20,320 feet above sea level. The team successfully funded their expedition by raising over $100k on KickStarter.
The climbers included Scott Briscoe, Stephen Deberry, James Kagambi, Billy Long, Ryan Mitchell, Tyrhee Moore, Robby ReChord, Rosemary Saal, Adina Scott, Stephen Shobe, and Erica Wynn.
