Black Panther is director Ryan Cooglers take on a modern African hero and a utopian vision of what an uncolonized Africa might look like. The film explores the conflict between two powerful men, one African and one African-American, who are mirror images of each other, each grappling with his own history, home, and very identity. When Prince TChalla (Chadwick Boseman) becomes king of the hidden, technologically advanced kingdom Wakanda, he is forced to defend his throne against rogue mercenary Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Wakanda is also alive with strong, intelligent womenfrom Wakandas elite all-female security force, led by Okoye (Danai Gurira), to the international spy Nakia (Lupita Nyongo), to TChallas tech-savvy sister (Letitia Wright) and mother (Angela Bassett)who are portrayed as equals to the men they protect and advise.
