The Black Panthers and Wakanda are all fictional characters and countries; there is nothing real about them. However, it is a fact that real life continues to mimic art, and it has been that way for centuries. Some of the technology we use today would seem right out of a sci-fi movie for our great-great forefathers were they to wake up from their deep sleep six feet under.
The Black Panther movie was another hit sci-fi movie by Marvel, but it has a very unique underlying them especially for the black community. A theme of empowerment, advancement in technology, and women playing a leading and crucial role in how the society is governed.
The Marvel movie broke box office records and was a big success by all measures. To celebrate the success that was the Black Panther, Disney has pledged $1 million funding to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
