Deconstructing Black Panther: Race and Identity Beyond the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be discussed on Feb. 22. This presentation/discussion will examine the cultural impact of Black Panther. "The phenomenon of racism, colonialism, racial uplift ideology, economic empowerment, and political activism and resistance – themes that have long been relevant to the black experience in America as well as the African diaspora – in addition to comics/graphic novels, fashion, and Afrofuturism are just some of the topics that inform the discourse about this groundbreaking movie," says the eventbrite page for the event.
