It has taken a long time. And they are late, but Hollywood has finally produced a film that portrays Africa in a positive, in fact very good light. It is a fictional African country of course, but it is a step forward. The American actor Chadwick Boseman plays the Black Panther. The Black Panther is the superhero protector of Wakanda, a fictional country somewhere between Ethiopia, Sudan, The DRC, and Kenya.
The Black Panther is in the same universe as some of the other well-known Marvel super heroes, The Avengers and the X-Men. To have a black super hero finally be in the spotlight and have a stand alone story line of his own feels good. First Luke Cage and now Black Panther. It looks like Hollywood is finally truly diversifying. It’s a start. Lets hope the trend sets in.
