The Black Panther Marvel Comic movie released February 16, 2017. The response of the movie has sparked so much dialogue about the current state and future of people of African descent.
What has unfolded is that many people still remain unaware of where the idea of the Black Panther derives. And more so, the tons of information regarding black people, African people and its diaspora. In order to continue with the growth, we at Ark Republic launched a study packet which is a collection of resources for you to use and expand upon.
Here, births a study packet for educators, self-taught folk, artists, activists, resisters and dreamers.
This packet is a study guide to help build materials for people wanting to learn about the origins of the Black Panther, how the concept extended, as well as, ideas around the Black Panther movie.
This is a living, breathing study packet built by the people, for the people. All submissions that add to our building knowledge of understanding that Wakanda is rooted in a living-breathing past, and many Afro-futuristic possibilities.
To add to this packet, please email all materials and suggestions to the following: [email protected]
