From BPN and Unity Cville's community discussion & dinner at the Whiskey Jar and pre-screening at Violet Crown of the, now meteoric, blockbuster Black Panther, much discussion has emerged around the world of Wakanda. Rich in storyline, nuggets of wisdom, politcal, social, and economic commentary, while draped in soul-searching iconograpghy, Black Panther has tapped a social nerve in our society. What is it? Why is it so popular? Why does the world of Wakanda move us so? And how can we take some of the lessons and apply them in our community?
Join us for a follow-up community discussion as we unpack the messages. Come share your opinions - the good, the bad, and the indifferent. Which character did you identify with the most? Where does economics and culture fit in the discussion. What does the story mean to you? Are we too far out in fantasy or can we extract hope, direction, and collaboration to improve our community? Let's talk about it. April 11th ~ 6pm ~ Tonsler Park Rec. Center. Bring an open mind, open heart, and a respect for differing opinions. ALL are welcome.
Light refreshments will be available.
