On this bonus episode Mo is joined by Richard, digital advertising expert at Google and Seun, brand strategist at Facebook, to discuss the recent Black Panther movie. WARNING SPOILERS!!!
Including: the representation of Black women on screen and asking the question was a Killmonger true villain or simply misunderstood?
We also consider the concept of Wakanda representing an African utopia untouched by outside influences and colonialism, or are we (black people) simply pushing too much emotion onto what is essentially a Marvel Superhero Comic book film?
Richard and Seun consider the parallels between the need for diversity in Hollywood as well as the Tech industry, and the steps being made to influence positive change.
Special mentions to: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright and the queen Ms Angela Bassett
