Millions have seen Black Panther but not realised the film references real African history. In this interactive audio-visual presentation we will use photos,art and trailers from the movie alongside quotes and interviews from the director, actors and writers. For each fact revealed we will list at least one book/dvd which illustrates the actual black history shown in the film .  We will also show which local and international museums you can find the evidence in. We will cover:

  • African female soldiers ancient and modern
  • 5 black female generals and Africa’s real vibranium
  • Black female inventors and their inventions
  • The Black Panther Party in Brixton and Notting Hill
  • 5 Ancient African writing systems that are NOT Egyptian hieroglyphs)
  • Dress, design and architecture of West,East and South Africa
  • African spiritual systems pre European invasion with real African Goddesses
