About this event

An evening for anyone who loves film and wants a lively evening of talk and discussion.

Millions of people have seen the film Black Panther but not realised the film references real African history. In this interactive audio-visual presentation, historian Tony Warner will use photos, art and trailers from the movie alongside quotes and interviews, revealing at least one book/dvd which illustrates the actual black history shown in the film. He will also show which local and international museums you can find the evidence in. He will cover African female soldiers ancient and modern, black female generals, Africa's real vibranium, Ancient African writing systems that are NOT Egyptian hieroglyphs, the real Wakanda and the IMF/World Bank and more. This is actual black history disguised in 1960's comics and 21st century movies

This event is brought to you by the producers of African Superheroes Day and Superman: The Black History Movie Breakdown. Useful for adults, children, teachers, students, nerds, Pan Africanists and Black Panther fans.

This talk is followed by a talk by Mary Wild: Psychoanalysing the Films of Stanley Kubrick.
