In honor of Black Panther officially releasing tomorrow, I recently decided to suit up and take a trip to the jungles of Wakanda for my first cosplay. ‘The Sensational Black Panther’ was created by two white men in July of 1966, during the height of the American Civil Rights era and the infancy of the Black Power Movement. Prior to his inception, there were no other mainstream black superheroes within American comics. T’Challa was the first of his kind, and was introduced during a time where African-Americans were depicted within mainstream media as pervasive and subservient. Thanks to the aforementioned white men, Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, African Americans were introduced to a character whose immensely regal presence, brilliant intellect, and in unimaginable wealth would open doors for a new delineation of not only how blacks in America were portrayed in society but how we as a people portray ourselves. We are descendants of great African Queens & Kings, and we have, in small part, to thank two white men who now, in 2018, help to remind us that Afrofuturism is no longer a foreign concept or ideal, but something tangible, obtainable, and profitable. Thank you to Marvel Studios, Ryan Coogler, Chadwick Boseman, and the rest of the the impeccably brilliant list of actors, actresses, and behind the scenes personnel who brought this modern adaptation of T’Challa to life. Long live the King. | ???? @elijah_lecomte #BlackPanther #BlackPantherMovie #BlackPantherCosplay #BlackPantherChallenge #Tchalla #WakandaForever #Marvel #MarvelStudios #Cosplay @marvelstudios @blackpanther @ryancoogler @chadwickboseman @michaelbjordan @lupitanyongo @therealstanlee
