Wakanda Forever: Part 1 – What Our Generation Needs

Black Panther is the movie that our generation needs right now. It is a movie of historic proportions.  I am not going to give away any spoilers in this review. But before I get into the film, let me share an experience:

A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

In 2003 I visited Ghana, West Africa. ¬†Actually, it was my very first time on the continent and when my feet left the airplane steps and touched African soil, I suddenly had a feeling I couldn’t explain… I was “home.” How could I feel “home” in a place I had never physically visited before? I still don’t know how to explain it. Perhaps there’s something in the collective consciousness of a people who were stripped from their motherland. But, while sitting in the theater watching Black Panther, there were scenes which caused me to have a feeling very similar to that first visit to Ghana.
