Black Panther – some thoughts

Was feeling down last night so my daughter took me to see “Black Panther”. 11pm show. 3D. I’m not into super hero movies but the celebration of African cultures, the use of words like colonial theft, systemic oppression, struggle for justice, etc, a beautiful almost exclusively Black cast packed with kick-ass women, the sound of isiXhosa (one of South Africa’s 11 official languages), kente cloth as magnetic shield, the highlighting of Black ingenuity and Africa’s rich land and resources, all of this was a treat. Don’t miss it.
