It’s safe to say that everyone who has seen “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has enjoyed it. So far the outcome at the box office has also been really successful.

When this year began there were so many events, feelings and losses. Get your tissues ready because the character losses and failures in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will have you in tears. Important character cameos and significant events set up important movie plots.

Prepare yourself for the action-packed Marvel movie of 2022. It’s the ideal way to finish Marvel’s 2022 after watching the bad quality and character selection in earlier movies and television episodes. All of the errors Marvel Studios committed this year are made up for in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

This movie has inspired many students at HBCUs and has created an impact on how they view things. The ability to come together with HBCUs has been educating minorities, providing them with economic opportunities, and establishing strong values for more than 100 years.

Not only have HBCUs continuously produced leaders in their communities and across the country, but they are currently creating future leaders consistently and economically.

Omni Gould, a second-year pre-nursing student at Florida A&M from Naples, said after watching the movie her most favorite part was how Marvel memorialized the passing of Chadwick Boseman in the beginning.

“They honored him very respectfully and truly made him feel like a hero to the Wakanda family,” Gould said. “They did a very good job with staying with the overall plot and making his passing not only memorable but impactful.”

Attending an HBCU we have many heroes who we look up to. Florida A&M University strives to make sure you succeed and have meaningful times throughout your years at the school.

When Evodie Ngalamulume moved to America at the age of 12 she knew becoming successful was her only goal to make her family proud.

Ngalamulume, a third-year political science major from Nigeria, said that the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” was the best film she ever watched.

“It really represents our culture and what we stand for,” Ngalamulume said. “Being born in Nigeria and losing my father at a young age has really shaped me to become who I am today.”

“Wakanda Forever” is more than just a catchphrase; it’s a pledge that a society can endure unfathomable suffering and unavoidable loss and still advance. Despite losing a cherished leader like T’Challa, they could continue on and keep their pledge to keep their civilization the following day. It’s Wakanda forever in that sense.
