In honor of the one-year anniversary of #BlackPanther’s release, we’re celebrating #BlackPantherWeek! 🙌🏿

First up, let’s dive into the story of Erik Killmonger, played by @michaelb4jordan, and the forgotten children of Wakanda.
The powerful women of #BlackPanther are the backbone of Wakanda. Nakia, played by @Lupita_Nyongo, chose her passions and her desire to help the world over her love for the king.

Here’s why her character was so important. #BlackPantherWeek
#BlackPanther was the film debut for @Winston_Duke aka M’Baku.

M’Baku was truly the real MVP of #BlackPanther! He stole the show with every scene and we couldn’t get enough of it. #BlackPantherWeek

Out here at @theaafca's Special Achievement Awards luncheon. #aafcaawards10
The first award, the Horizon Award, goes to studio executive, @alanaoyam.

Who said she used to complain about being the only Black person in the room, until her friend asked her, "What are you gonna do about it?" That helped shape her career. #aafcaawards10
The 2019 Pioneer Award goes to jazz musician Buddy Bolden. Director Dan Pritzer is making a film about his life. #aafcaawards10

It’s the final hours of 2018, so I’m going to reflect a bit.

This year was Hard. It was, honestly, the type of year where I wondered if I wanted to make it to the next. I felt like a stuck gear, gummed up with anxiety and self-doubt, chronic pain and depression. 1/
The year seemed to pass in an interminable, disassociated haze of pain, so it’s easy, then, to wonder “did I really do anything? Did I accomplish anything?”

But I did! I did so much. 2/
At the beginning of the year, my goal was to have five (5) NPR bylines.

I’m ending the year with 22.

I won’t share all of them, but here are some highlights. 3/

Marvel's Black Panther won Original Score, Album, and Song at the Hollywood Music In Media awards. Congrats @ludwiggoransson @SZA & @kendricklamar @SounwaveTDE Al Shux.…
Russo Brothers show their support for Director Ryan Coogler and Black Panther cast. Oscar season 💖. Seeing other Marvel Cinematic Universe directors show support is awesome.
Great piece about Stan Lee by Rise of The Black Panther comic creator @EvNarc "Wakanda was the way Stan Lee spoke to me"… via @Polygon

Na escravidão, a busca pela liberdade nascia no segundo em que grilhões fechavam os pulsos dos negros. Muitos lutaram para encontrá-la em vida, mas essa história desoladora é sobre aqueles que só a encontraram através da própria morte no evento conhecido como Desembarque Igbo
É impossível contar quantas vidas africanas foram ceifadas pelo tráfico negreiro. A única estimativa são de quantos chegaram às Américas pelo Atlântico (12 milhões). A mortalidade nos navios era grotesca, historiadores estimam que entre 15 e 25%
dos negros morriam
O tratamento era brutal, pessoas amontoadas abaixo do convés. O calor era implacável e a falta de ar era desesperadora. Nem as velas que deveriam iluminar o local queimavam. Se alguma suspeita de doença surgisse, centenas de africanos poderiam ser lançados ao mar.

#CrazyRichAsians is headed for a monster opening, and it’s essential to look at why. A full 38% of viewers so far have been Asian—we’re COMING OUT for this film as we never have in cinematic history.

But another 24% of viewers are black or Hispanic: *viewers are 62% nonwhite*.
The book #CrazyRichAsians was based on was a NYT bestseller. When the target for the book is described by folks in publishing, they say “white female, summer read, book club, 35-54.” That audience isn’t who’s filling theaters—yet.

They’re the ones who might take this to $100M.
If you haven’t seen it yet, a small spoiler. After the first 15 minutes of #CrazyRichAsians, you will not see another nonwhite person on screen. Not even in background shots. And the only white people with speaking roles get played like dominoes. In the first five minutes.

#thread My first exposure to planning came in my junior year of high school. I had discovered my passion for history and had worked for six years in local governance (prosecutor's office, community food co-op). #SoJustSuburbs /1
Learning urban design in a suburban context led me to ask questions about the limitations of traditional planning education. #SoJustSuburbs #SaturdaySchool /2
At the heart of these questions, I focused on the life of William Harris, a farmer worker with intellectual disabilities who worked on central NJ plantations, 1932-1961. The "rural" was rarely a factor in planning conversations. #SoJustSuburbs #SaturdaySchool /3

So when The Oscars gonna bite MTV’s shit and add ‘Best Kiss’ LOL?
I mean if The Oscars are gonna jump the shark and start giving out a consolation prize that is the equivalent of that wack ass “Urban Pop” category from The Grammys, y’all might as well go all in 🤷🏾‍♀️
Personally this was one of my faves 😂

Sirius the Jaeger is a new anime with chara designs by ex-Capcom luminary Kinu Nishimura (@nishi_katsu). It's about werewolves violently killing vampires in 1930s East Asia. Directed by Masahiro Ando (Sword of the Stranger). It's got everything I like!😃
Sirius the Jaeger has some compelling stuff going on! It's too early to tell, but I think the series might be drawing a parallel between Colonialism/Imperialism and Vampirism, which was also a strong theme throughout Blood: The Last Vampire.
Blood The Last Vampire was definitely a visual and tonal influence on Sirius the Jaeger. The Vampires in Sirius look very much like the Chiropterans from Blood (designed by GOAT illustrator Katsuya Terada!)

Since we are talking about colorism again, I need all my friends and colleagues--be you lightskinned or darkskinned--to understand some important things:
Feelings are admittedly needed to have this discussion because we wouldn't talk about it if we didn't give a fuck.

But your feelings should not take precedence over folx who are literally and systematically being screwed over in real time. Like as we speak. And have been systematically screwed over for YEARS.

After my talk on #Afrofuturism #Blackpanther and black video game characters at #feralvector, lots of people asked me for resources and recommendations. Here's a thread...
My talk was based on this article I wrote for @guardian…
Octavia E Butler is a black, feminist writer who is associated with afrofuturism. She tackles slavery, power, gender and sexuality in her books. Her most famous work is Kindred. Also the Xenogenesis series…

I see the girl who wore the Chinese dress to prom retorted with "its a fucking dress"

(not linking to it directly cos no need for extra pile on)

What a disappointing response.
Back during the #BlackPanther run, @danikwateng talked with me about appropriation vs appreciation of traditional African clothing. You can read that here…
Here's the rub really. You can absolutely (white folks) appreciate things from cultures that are not your own. That involves work on your part. It also involves a degree of humility when it comes to being called on those things.

1/ Finally saw Ready Player One in Mumbai. It was even trashier than I expected. I mean, how could the world design be SO unimaginative?
2/ Nothing felt fresh, nothing breathed LIFE in it. Not even the damn headset design! Like, seriously?!? I mean how in hell anyone would think that in 30 years VR devices will still look like glorified ski goggles?!?!?
3/ On a more serious note, I feel that RPO, in polar opposite to #BlackPanther, just closes down our imagination rather than opens it up in terms of what we can be as human society & what is the reality we can create for future generations.

Ok, a bit early but better late than never today.
Time to start the (semi) reviews of #blackpanther
#ReadyPlayerOne #PacificRimUprising and #Bladerunner2
First off, I will always love the first #BladeRunner always.
It put a lot of things in perspective...and had callouts to culture etc, etc.
The second movie was hurt immensely by the lack of new stuff Japan did over the last 30 years.
You cant say the same for #ReadyPlayerOneMovie
As a movie with a feel and a look #ReadyPlayerOneMovie is leagues better than #BladeRunner2049. This was the big mistake of the latter movie because even if it was more coherent than the former, its look and references were lacking killing the vibe.

I wish this asshole would shut the hell up. I didn't even think Alexandra Shipp's lightskinned tears could get even more aggressive and annoying but lo and behold I have been proven wrong again...making light of colorism and citing Lena Dunham as
It gets BETTER too. On top of Shipp dismissing colorism, she thinks colorism and racism can be defeated if you simply give lightskinned women more roles to prove that they are women.

Which kind All Lives Matter nonsense be this? Somebody come get ya girl 😩
And this is the nail in the coffin for me right here. Alexandra Shipp doesn't think it's the responsibility of lightskinned actresses to turn down roles they KNOW should go to darkskinned actresses because the studio will just give it to another lightskinned actress anyway.

You remember some time ago where I mentioned that I was working on something I'd hope would be a nice alternative to the Bechdel test?

Well, here it is. The Kent Test. A test that specifically gauges whether WOC representation in a piece of media is pathetic or strong.
A month or so ago, I mentioned I was working on a secret project (in addition to the Representation in Media guide) and I am happy to finally be unveiling it this! On #InternationalWomensDay no less. Because obviously we deserve 💁🏾
Some background: after the wonderful @EqualityforHER and @BlairImani recruited me to work on the guide, I started to think about what else I could contribute besides terminology and sources for people to learn more about representation in media.

So, I'm SUPER excited that everyone is enjoying my Nakia piece that I wrote for @WearYourVoice. And in that same vein, I am so, SO excited that #BlackPanther has inspired a lot of conversations on Pan-African and revolutionary thought.
That said though, this is a gentle reminder that the Erik Killmonger/Malcolm X comparisons do not *quite* work.
I say this because boiling down Malcolm's work & critical thought to him just being "violent" & uber militant foil to a de-fanged, de-politicized, & deified MLK Jr is not only the stuff of White liberal wet dreams (DID I STUDDER), but it is also qwhite, QWHITE off & has no basis.

In my final piece on #BlackPanther, I count all the ways Nakia, not T'Challa or Erik, is the literal MVP of the aforementioned film.…
There has been much discussion #onhere about who was truly right or wrong in the film. And while I have actually enjoyed damn near all of it, I have been curious as to why many of these discussions are leaving out Sister Nakia 🤔
And by curious, I mean tickled because its exposing hella biases and I don't think people even realize it lol
