Ryan Coogler’s film is a vivid re-imagination of something black Americans have cherished for centuries — Africa as a dream of our wholeness, greatness and self-realization.

'Black Panther': Why the relationship between Africans and black Americans is so messed up
WARNING: This post contains spoilers and discusses characters in Marvel’s “Black Panther.” I will feed you a nice Ghanaian jollof meal if you read further anyway

By Larry Madowo, Karen Attiah

... But how do Africans feel about this fictional tale of Wakanda, especially when black people in the United States and Africa don’t always seem to understand one another? I decided to talk to Kenyan journalist and broadcaster Larry Madowo to get his thoughts on the film, Wakanda and… those accents.

Michael B. Jordan on the potential downside of 'Black Panther' being so hyped up


Gibson Johns
AOL.com

"Black Panther" star Michael B. Jordan almost wishes that the Marvel film didn't have as much hype as it got before its release this past weekend. The 31-year-old star added that, regardless of the hype, he just wants "people to take away a sense of pride about where they come from" after seeing the movie ...
