Black Panther to return to the big screen for Black History Month

Marvel superhero film Black Panther will return to movie theaters in the US the first week of February to kick off Black History Month.

The news of Black Panther’s rerun on the big screen is according to The Walt Disney Company and this after the movie’s cast made history by taking home the 2019 SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

According to a report by Ebony Magazine, Disney wants to combat that lack of representation by providing opportunities for the younger generation. In addition to the Ryan Coogler-directed film being re-released in theaters, the company will also give a $1.5 million grant to support to the United Negro College Fund.

Released on the 29th of January 2018, the film featuring Kenyan Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan, Danai Gurira from Zimbabwe, Daniel Kaluuya who is of Ugandan descent, Forest Whitaker, Letitia Wright, and Angela Basset was a favorite for many in 2018.

The film was well received in the Black American community and Africa as a whole because it was set in “Africa”, the cast spoke the Zulu language from South Africa, the cast was mostly African American or African. Most of all, it depicted Africa as a culturally rich, innovative and beautiful continent as opposed to the usual hunger and poverty-stricken image of Africa.

Black Panther made Oscar history when it became the first superhero film to ever be nominated for the Best Picture category. It has been nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Costume Design.
