Black Panther and Representation
For our special extended Black Panther episode, Nicole and Stacy switch off hosting the discussion with Sarí and Christopher. We discuss the merits of Chadwick Boseman, the power of Disney and representation, the badassery of the women in the movie, tradition and family, growing up black in America, and the historical Black Panthers. Check out the Rita Moreno interview that talks about the importance of properly filming a dance scene (or an action sequence!) and director Ryan Coogler describing how he filmed the action sequence in the Korean club. Read the case for Black Panther being required viewing for white people, but maybe don't see Wolf Warrior.
Christopher recommends reading the newest Black Panther comics by Ta-Nehisi Coates and also his book, We Were Eight Years in Power. Sarí recommends Chris Rock's newest special, Tambourine, and Nicole recommends Moonlight.
