It's here - Black Panther is finally here. And lo and behold, it's supposedly great - with a solid 100% Fresh rating on RottenTomatoes (as of this writing, with over 50 reviews in, all glowing and heaping praise on the Ryan Coogler film). But beyond it being a very good movie, it's a very important movie - a story about an African nation, about colonialism and oppression, and starring a black majority cast...all as part of the single biggest mainstream movie franchise in existence - the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is a huge deal - the film was directed and written by African-Americans, has music largely composed and featuring black artists, and stars (again) a majority black cast. This is an undoubtedly massive moment for diversity and representation on-screen - and people are ecstatically sharing their emotions around Black Panther and how deeply it's affecting them, thanks to a prompt by Black Girl Nerds.

























If you're not excited and moved by how much this movie means to so many people, I don't really know what to say to you. Just be glad society is growing more diverse, caring more about representation and empowerment, and giving Michael B. Jordan another shot at a superhero movie after he got stuck doing Fant4stic.
