Newark Students see "Black Panther"




Next Generation Project accepts the challenge from Fredrick Joseph who started the campaign in Harlem in its effort to help the youth. Now we want to expand their efforts in the city of Newark New Jersey for students to go see Black Panther.

The release of Marvel's film the "Black Panther" is a great opportunity for students to see characters coming from a rich background of culture.  This movie is important for young teens to see hero's that looks like them in a majority African American cast. The Character Black Panther's name predates the October 1966 founding of the Black Panther Party. He is the first black superhero in American mainstream comic books; virtually no black heroes were created before him, and none with actual superpowers. The title "Black Panther" is a rank of office, chieftain of the Wakandan Panther Clan.  As chieftain, the Panther is entitled to eat a special Heart-Shaped Herb which, in addition to his mystical connection with the Wakandan Panther God, grants him superhumanly acute senses, enhanced strength, speed, agility, stamina, durability, healing, and reflexes.

His senses are so powerful that he can pick up a prey's scent and memorize tens of thousands of individual ones. T'Challa In addition to the resurgence of his now superhuman abilities, he is anointed "King of the Dead", granting him the power and knowledge of all the past Black Panthers as well as the ability to control the undead.

Clarkisha Kent of TheRoot.com writes about the importance of the Black Panther film "Black Panther remains socially and culturally relevant because it imagines a world where black people continually triumph over the influences of capitalism, Western imperialism and white supremacy."
