"Wakanda Forever: Black Panther, Afrofuturism, & UU"
by Jamie Hinson-Rieger

In 2018 the film Black Panther was released. The epic tale of an African superhero, featuring an almost all black cast and with a black director, smashed box office records to become the third highest grossing American film of all time. Its vision of a technologically advanced African kingdom untouched by any history of colonization struck a chord with many people, and the phrase “Wakanda Forever!” along with characteristic crossed arms salute quickly became a cultural touchstone. In this month devoted to the theme of “Truth and Lies” we will ask, what is the power of afrofuturism, what is the great lie it seeks to undo, and what message does it have for the future of Unitarian Universalism?
