For over 50 years, the Black Panther has inspired people from the pages of Marvel, in a week, he will take his rightful place on the big screen, but why tho? Why do we still care about Black Panther, Wakanda and the man under the mask: T'Challa. With special guest Sceritz aka Ritz, host of @WakandaIVLyfe (a Black Panther podcast), we dive into the history of the character and talk representation, diaspora, authorship and how the new movie is already breaking records.
