Black + Super


Outside the Obama years, this has perhaps been the best President's Day weekend I can recall. Note: This is in no part due to the current occupant of the White House, but thanks to Hollywood. Shattering record ticket sales, the Marvel - Disney production of "Black Panther" premier gave myself and many others pause and cause to celebrate. Finally, a major blockbuster action film showcases a super hero with a black face (and majority, star-studded black cast). Fantasy aside, the film celebrates the real power of representation, Afrocentric pride for all those in the Diaspora, feminism ... and the list of positive #wakandaforever vibes goes on and on. I hope this is the beginning of a franchise with many follow-ups and spin-offs to come! In the meantime, I'm going into the work week feeling black and super!
