At this point, the list of accolades Marvel’s Black Panther has drawn is beyond counting. Recently however, the box-office juggernaut added another name to its list of admirers and this is one endorsement you definitely want to have on your side.
Former Lady of the United States Michelle Obama sent out a tweet yesterday congratulating the cast and crew of Black Panther for the movie’s phenomenal success, while also hoping that the movie inspires an entire legion of black kids to become heroes in their own right. You can check out the entire tweet embedded below:
Congrats to the entire #blackpanther team! Because of you, young people will finally see superheroes that look like them on the big screen. I loved this movie and I know it will inspire people of all backgrounds to dig deep and find the courage to be heroes of their own stories.
