A businesswoman said she has begun filming a documentary about the loss of black men but needs help to finish the project.
T. Shawn Taylor, 47, said she spent $1,800 of her own money so far and is prepared to spend $2,000 more on the project, which she estimated would cost $65,000 to complete by 2015. The money raised will be used to help pay for equipment, production and a film crew.
The film will take her back to her hometown near the Mississippi River where she grew up and end in Chicago, she said.
"It will be good to see all my old friends who I grew up with and get caught up on things," added Taylor.
