Viewers of last night’s College Football Playoff National Championship got an extended look at “Black Panther,” Marvel Studios’ film adaptation of the comic of the same name, starring Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, the king and protector of African nation Wakanda.
Locally, there will be no better place to see the movie on the screen than at the premier party hosted by a more than half a dozen groups, including grassroots think-tank Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle, community group Fight Blight Bmore, the social justice organization Equity Matters, Inc., and Intentional Community Building Collective.
Attendees will see a screening at Towson Cinemark at 3 p.m. and then head to the Living Well Center at 7 p.m. for a panel discussion on the film’s cultural impact moderated by Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle CEO Adam Jackson and featuring Dr. Henry Gregory, Koko Zauditu-Selassie, Olufunmike Woods, and Bashi Rose. There will also be spoken word performances Lady Brion and J. Tesla/Black Chakra, and music by DJ Prolific.
The event, which includes lite dinner and drinks, is on Feb. 17 and runs until 11 p.m. Tickets range between $28.30-$54.64.
