I saw Black Panther over the weekend and all I can say is WOW! Such a beautiful and empowering film! I don’t think I have ever been so proud to be in my beautiful black skin before. Seeing it with my daughter was also priceless. I loved how empowered and strong the female characters were in the film and that all of the science, technology and innovation in the story line was driven by woman!
Wonderful messages throughout the movie. I left the theater wishing that I lived in Wakanda. I realize it’s not a real place but I wonder how we can create a Wakanda world in our own homes and communities. Feeling like royalty in the everyday experiences of life. (I would love to get my hands on the beautiful costumes in the film!!!! ) Raising our sons and daughters to take pride in themselves and to serve the world in bigger ways. Getting more involved in our communities that need help and support. I have always wanted to start a empowerment center for women and girls. I need to revisit that dream for sure! Are there dreams that you have pushed away that needed to be dusted off?
This film has definitely created a shift and opened our eyes to what is possible. I think we all needed this during a time with so much division and pain. I’m looking forward to what will come out of this new energy and spirit that is being ushered in with this movie. Let’s get busy making a Wakanda like world our reality.
