With “Black Panther” finally upon us, “Avengers: Infinity War” in the near future and the Marvel Cinematic Universe an utter mess, it’s hard to figure out where and how certain things fit into the MCU.
There is no doubt this movie is dedicated to black people. The African-American community needs this movie in this day and age, in the wake of modern-day racism and the Trump era social climate of the US as a whole.
The women in “Black Panther” are important in more ways than one. Not only are they the foundation of the film itself, but they open the doors for more black female representation and will serve as an inspiration to young black girls everywhere.
If you are going to watch this movie without knowing anything about Marvel or its superhero movie franchise, you will have to keep in mind that this is still part of a greater collection of stories. But “Black Panther” can and does stand on its own.

“Black Panther” is not “just a superhero movie.” It’s a black superhero film, directed and written by black people, for everyone, but with black people in mind.
“R.I.P. to your burst bubble
Before, you thought we were trouble
This movie dragged us out the rubble
And had you colonizers seeing double.”
