About Black Panther – Black Panther is not just a superhero movie but is a movie that explores issues of identity. Its themes challenge institutional bias and oppressors. The movie provides powerful narratives of experiences people of color and women have faced though history. It represents the importance of representation in our culture. The movie has made great strides in the entertainment industry in many ways – it is one of the first megabudget movies to have an African American director and predominantly black cast. This article in Time describes more of the ways this movie represents an important milestone and the power and narratives behind it.
