Session 4: Saturday, June 2nd: 4:00 - 5:50pm
Description/Abstract of your Event:
Early in 2018 we saw Black Panther rise to become the 3rd highest grossing film in America, and there was no shortage of online conversations surrounding #WakandaForever. While this film made unprecedented history with its almost all-Black cast, our panel will get into some of the deeper themes of the film and how they have been perceived by everyday viewers. Discussion will be centered around how mass incarceration, toxic masculinity, economic inequality, and not only how it was addressed in the film but the longer lasting implications these ideas may have on society.
