If you missed last night’s edition of Biblical Conversations on Culture, I interviewed Pastor Angulus Wilson, Dean of Chapel at Fresno Pacific University in Fresno, CA about Marvel’s hit film Black Panther. Takeaways from the interview:
- Black Panther presents an alternative, progression vision of Africa than we usually see on screen.
- The film breaks the mold of the typical “Black Movie” genre that Hollywood produces. Rather than portraying a black character that glorifies violence and crime, or focuses on poverty and oppression it portrays a positive image of kings, queens, and heroes. “You see a black man in a role of positive leadership.”
- Angulus makes some interesting Christological parallels with T’Challa as an image of a king with an invisible kingdom.
- Angulus makes some interesting missiological parallels for the church and shares some great information about the mission movement that is coming FROM Africa to America.
