Fulfillment. Pride. Undeniable Joy. These are feelings I had leaving the theatre. They are also the same feelings I had after watching the first Black president win the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. It’s the same feelings I get after watching documentaries on the Civil Rights Movement, Black Panther Movement and everything that shows how a group of people were able to find beauty in the hardships that was forced upon them. It’s the strong and driving force of black celebration and excellence in one of its purest forms. Defining the odds and succeeding beyond society’s standards. Black Panther was undoubtedly the image of an uncolonized African country that many of my ancestors and others could only dream about. Even though the country belongs to the colorful pages of Marvel comics and the graphics displayed on the AMC screen, I still maintain the proud and strong belonging of the African Heritage that I cannot trace back. Black Panther does more than feed my Marvel geek fuel, it is the example and has now established the standard for those who have yearned for a Black superhero figure on the big screen.
