Wakanda Comes to Washington, Museum Acquires ‘Black Panther’ Items
It looks like items from the box office hit “Black Panther,” will soon make its way to the National Museum of African American History And Culture.
On Wednesday, the museum officially made an announcement,
“Black Panther is the first superhero of African descent to appear in mainstream American comics, and the film itself is the first major cinematic production based on the character. Black Panther illustrates the progression of blacks in film, an industry that in the past have overlooked blacks, or regulated them to flat one-dimensional and marginalized figures.”
According to NBC Washington, the costume that Chadwick Boseman wore in the film will be on display, as well as scripts used by the crew and behind the scenes photos.
The items will go on display in October during the museum’s first Smithsonian African American Film Festival
