#var:page_name# cover

(X) Wakanda Forever! In collaboration with the Producers Guild of America we will be showing Black Panther followed by a moderated panel discussion. In the panel, travel to the magical world of Wakanda as we explore the history, culture & influence of Black Panther. Panelists will explore the historical ties around the lore of Black Panther, how it has influenced them, how the film was made, and where the world of Wakanda is taking us. Panelists will include UCLA faculty member Tananarive Due, Reginald Hudlin who was a writer for the Black Panther comic (2005-2008), Ruth E. Carter who designed the costumes for the film & Nate Moore who was a producer for the film. Current student, Ayanna McKnight, will be helping with the panel and asking questions from students. The event will conclude with a reception with the Producers Guild.
