‘Black Panther’

Malcolm X, Do the Right Thing, Coming to America…Black Panther is in the pantheon of great black films, immediately. So what can I say that hasn’t been hot taked to death already?  I picked a few things… Stakes – Yes, I’m going to use ‘the Dark Knight’ as one of the best examples, but it’s […]
