    Cowboys safety Kavon Frazier doesn’t like to talk all that much about his work in the community because he never wants to it seem self-serving.

    That said, Frazier said it was important for his foundation, Frazier Cares, to team with some local judges and attorneys to make sure more than 600 students from D. A. Hulcy Middle School, located in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas, had an opportunity to see the much-acclaimed movie Black Panther.

    “It’s a great movie for kids to see, especially black kids,” Frazier said in a text message.

    “The majority of black movies nowadays is about oppression, poverty, gang violence or sports. First time, we had a super hero who’s seen with power.”

    Dallas Judges Andrea Martin and Kim Cooks helped organize the event.

    Frazier’s foundation has been active since he started it as a rookie two seasons ago. He’s been involved in back-to-school events that provided school supplies and Christmas events to serve underprivileged children.

    And he’s not done taking students to see the country’s hottest movie. Black Panther has earned more than $300 million during this holiday weekend.

    “It’s a great movie,” he texted. “I’m taking more kids soon.”
