“We all know what its like to be told, there is not a place for you to be featured…We know what its like to be told there isn’t a screen, a stage for you to be featured on. We all know what its like to be the tail and not the head. We all know what its like to be beneath and not above.” In making Black Panther “We knew could create a world, that exemplified the world we wanted to see.”
