Tonight was special.
Yes we rolled 60 people deep, yes dozens of Dashikis were worn and yes I picked my hair out to rock a fro. But that is not what was most special.
Tonight was special because I left Black Panther feeling so proud. This was such a BRILLIANT film that celebrated the beauty of my culture in ways that few films have been given the ability to do.
For others, there are a plethora of heroes to identify with in the superhero universe, but for so many others, their stories are simply not represented as often or shared as thoughtfully.
I can not explain to you how inspiring it was to see powerful black women and men be given a chance to bring such a unique story of heroism to life. To everyone who had a hand in making this film...thank you, thank you, thank you.
We are most powerful when we are connected to a tribe and I'm so thankful I found mine. If you're looking for one too, come hang with us at this crazy place called @mosaic. I gotta feeling you'll love it.
