Unless you have been living under a rock, that has been thrown in the deepest part of the ocean you know that Black Panther came out last week. This movie was a must see for me. I love marvel and I love black people. I purchased my tickets weeks before the movie came out. The anticipation was high.
The movie was full of beautiful melanated people. The men and women were both georgous. The depiction of Africa was beautiful (#teamWakanda). We are so used to seeing negative depictions that it was refreshing to see one of beauty.
One thing that stood out to me about this movie was the strength of the black woman. Not only were there beautiful women but there were intelligent women(Letitia Wright, on of my favorite characters) and women with immense strength Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira). Women stuck together in order to take down a “bad guy”. This spoke to me in so many different ways.
There are so many levels to this movie. So many things i can write for days about. So many valid (while “fantasy”) points, although this is a “fantasy style movie so many things in the movie are relevant to present day.
I don’t want to spoil it for those who did not see it, but if you didn’t please do. It is jam packed with goodness. Beauty, Comedy, action, and even a love story. All I can say is… go see it!
