Fountain of Youth Program Presents 'Boy' Movie Trailer Screening

Date: Nov 10, 2022
Time: 6:00 PM

The Nantucket Project sought Fountain of Youth Founder Caprice Jones out in 2020, shortly after the death of George Floyd and asked if he would like to be a part of the conversation regarding race in America and ideas of change. They set up a time to meet with community members at Four Mounds and had discussions regarding the possibility of a new world. The group also met at Fountain of Youth to share information about the mission and aspirations for the future within the Dubuque community. After sitting in and seeing more of the Fountain of Youth Program’s operations, and hearing Caprice’s story, the founder of The Nantucket Project, Tom Scott, asked Caprice Jones if he would like to be a part of the movie they were shooting.

While working on this movie, they filmed at local spots within Dubuque, which may be familiar to some of you. Filming also touched on Caprice’s roots in Chicago and filmed in the neighborhoods he ran through and spent much of his time in. “Boy” takes 5 black men visible in their roles within the community, who changed their mindsets and wish to be a role model to the younger generation of black men. The Fountain of Youth program, would like to invite you to be a part of the conversation, and gather in a moment of solidarity while viewing the trailer for the upcoming movie “Boy,” followed by a conversation to discuss thoughts and to answer the question: “is another world possible?”
