Black Panther Selected Readings 2

Hey there!

Here’s a rare Saturday posting just for those of you who went to see Black Panther last night, and are so excited, that you have to have more information. As I said a few months ago, I’m trying to only link to articles and posts by PoC, with the occasional thinkpiece by NBPoC, because sometimes that can be interesting. (And don’t worry, I’ll never post anything bad or nasty about Black focused media, and trust me, those articles are out there.)

I’ll be seeing Black Panther this Sunday, with my niece, and my Mom, and I’m probably gonna have some thoughts about the experience. I’ll let you know.

I loved this reaction from Africans on the movie, and how they rated the film based on how many jollofs. It was so much fun to watch this video.
