It's Time For Africa to Shine

Released only a week ago, Marvel's Black Panther has taken the world by storm and is already outperforming recently released Superhero movies such as "Justice League" and "Logan." Predictions show that after this weekend Black Panther will surely be one of the Top 12 best Superhero movies of all time.

Although the film is based mythical location called Wakanda, it celebrates African culture in the most accurate ways possible. Drawing from various African cultures and traditions and showing the world who we are!
