‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ celebrates diverse culture and heritage, showing us how Wakanda has remained an inspiration and a cultural space for the world.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the film that brought Wakanda to the world’s attention, filmmaker Ryan Coogler is hosting an event in Wakanda’s capital city of Wakanda that will include performances, a panel discussion, cultural performances and a screening of scenes from the film.
The evening will be hosted and hosted by Wakanda President, Daniel K. Inouye, and co-chaired by Inouye’s wife, former first lady Laura Bush, on behalf of the first lady’s Center for Women and Government Leadership.
The event will be held Monday, April 10 from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, located at:
For the last ten years there has been a significant change at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. As in any new building, the Museum experienced significant technical challenges and had to fight an uphill battle to keep the space open. The challenge has been met, and in record time.
The Smithsonian recently announced the reopening of the building to the public. The Museum, which is currently closed on Mondays through the Memorial Day weekend, is now open daily. The museum’s doors will re-open May 6th on a limited basis before re-opening on a full month-long basis that runs through Monday, June 11th — an early opening to showcase this special event to the public. The doors will be open on Mondays every day from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for people who have not been able to see the museum in their lifetime, or who lived through the recent tragedy. The building will be open on Monday, April 10th through Monday, June 11, 2015.
If you are unable to attend the event in person, there are other opportunities to show your support on this special weekend.
