Live Streaming Video at Black Panther Society
Black Panther Fan Club WebCast
Hi, I’m Angela (AJ) Perez, WebCasting Specialist at The American Movie Company in NYC.
Tonight we were privileged to produce a three camera WebCast of the first meeting of the newly formed Black Panther Society. The inspiration for the event was, of course, the amazing Black Panther film.
It has sparked long overdue conversations about a host of relevant topics, including but not limited to the Black experience in the U.S., to African Americans in the media, to stereotypes, to heroic archetypes, etc., etc.
The contributions to the discussion were insightful, eloquently and passionately expressed. My thanks to Darlene Jenkins who organized and chaired the event and who was its most charismatic spokesperson.
Amy Goodman, Democracy Now! – Video Interview
Darlene Jenkins, the amazingly talented wonder woman, who produced the event, asked the participants to react to the Amy Goodman interview above.
The result was an animated, vibrant discussion which revealed a great depth of emotion re the subject. Event participants were not just stimulated by the film (as they often are by Marvel superhero films) and the video commentary but were genuinely moved to express a wide variety of thoughtful ideas.
The consensus was that the film was not only highly entertaining but brought something new and overdue to the forefront. It was a welcome and fascinating topic.
Black Panther Pounces and Leaves its Print
The film thus far has been praised on so many levels, for the screenplay, the inspiring characters, the futuristic costumes, the amazing soundtrack, and of course the action sequences. Ryan Coogler ‘s vision and direction are worthy of the accolades from critics and fans across the universe. I read that it’s broken records in terms of how much it has grossed worldwide – over $756 million in a four-day opening weekend! Clearly an impressive accomplishment!
The film is unique in that it introduces us to strong women, to people who treasure intellectual pursuits, whose values are intact, who pursue and excel in technology. Wakanda is a marvel (pun intended). It has never been conquered and so it is free of all the negativity that comes from being controlled. In the end the film is important because it shows us what African culture might have been if it were free of colonization. If only we could re-write history and ponder the past without abuses of power.
On a very elementary level, I think the film is an incredible opportunity for young African-Americans to see themselves portrayed on screen in a positive light. It’s uplifting. Of late, we’ve had enough negative images almost on a daily basis.
I digress for a moment to recommend you see another film directed by Coogler – Fruitvale Station. It is a powerful film that will make you think and shed tears.
I’ll leave you with the image of a young black teen hugging the poster of Black Panther with such love and tenderness. That feeling is infectious.
