This Black History Month, Take a Youth to the Black Panther Movie Campaign

The very idea of a big-budget superhero movie with a 90% black cast making its cinematic debut during Black History month is a big deal in the making.

Panther Movie Trailer

The moment I saw the Black Panther movie trailer I knew I had to see it. When I realized that it will be making its’ cinematic debut during Black History Month (BHM), I had a vision of it being used as powerful instrument of change.

I Had an Epiphany

I saw us take this “merely neat looking superhero movie” according to Forbes Magazine and turned it into a super major block buster. Making it the highest grossing Marvel Universe production to date. Leaving Thor 3 and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, their perceived block busters in the dust. I saw major movie makers, manufacturers, restaurant chains, sport teams etc view Black History Month in a new light. In the process we harness the energy generated to successfully changed the “When we were slaves” BHM narrative to “Where do we go from here”. Empowered, we launch many new initiatives that forever changed BHM dialogue.


According to Forbes Magazine

“Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, is merely a neat looking superhero movie scheduled between Thor 3 and Avengers: Infinity War”

But to those of us who are negatively portrayed on a regular basis, desperate to see ourselves represented positively on the big screen in a major way, a movie like this, with a cast of almost every black actor you can think of such as Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Danai Gurira and many more, it’s the movie event of a lifetime.

A Movie that can:

  1. Inspire, influence and Motivate our youth
  2. Change the “When we were slaves” Black History Month narrative
