Black Panther is a must see, but I’m sure you’ve heard this already from various media platforms. Black Panther is a source of inspiration and motivation to students and staff in the academy. It is an affirmation to so many Black communities within the diaspora that you are enough. Sometimes the academy can lead us to believe that there one way to discuss Black life. Black Panther has showed us the critical and necessary conversations we can have regarding the Black community through art, specifically film. The actors and screenwriters of Black Panther are creative scholars and you too can use creativity to build a bridge between theory and practice. Lastly allow Black Panther to serve as a source of joy for you to continue to push through. This film will go down in history and should serve as an honorable moment as a member of the African diaspora.
