The Marvel movie, ‘Black Panther,’ came to theaters on February 16, 2018. It takes place in the fictional African country of Wakanda. Wakanda is an isolationist nation with a monarchy and a monopoly on the strongest metal known to man, vibranium. They have created an advanced civilization, with futuristic technology. They hide themselves in plain sight as a supposed third world country, while being the most advanced nation in history. The Black Panther, the hero of the movie, is a Wakandan with the power of their mythical panther god. The movie is filled with fight scenes and great action, however; this movie’s impact reaches beyond the theater. It has boosted interest in African cultures and empowered young black men and women. It is about more than an African country; it also comments on the oppression of black men and women in the inner city. If you are interested in seeing, ‘Black Panther’, it is still in theaters.
