The Black Panther has been one of the most (if not the most) iconic movies of 2018 and it’s only February. Everyone from the cast and crew did a phenomenal job putting together a story that most certainly needed to be told. During this day and age it’s important for black adults and kids growing up to see people who look like them in positive roles. There were so many kids who dressed up as characters of the film and it just goes to show that representation is extremely important.

The Black Panther also did amazing at the domestic and international box office. During its opening weekend, it amassed over $200 million domestically and $168.7 million internationally. And apparently box office revenue projectors originally thought that Black Panther wouldn’t make that much……idiots!
The soundtrack for the film produced by Kendrick Lamar also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart. It features notable black artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Sza, School boy Q, 2 Chainz, Swae Lee, Travis Scott and The Weeknd. Click here to listen to the soundtrack.
And of course social media went crazy over the film. Here’s one of the many memes that were created….
The film was extremely inspiring, but what was more inspiring was the amount of people that dressed up for the film. Our people really showed up and showed out for the culture. There were a mix between traditional african prints/ attire and black panther party all-black. It was also wonderful to see the amount of families that came to support the movie.
