When I first saw the trailer for Black Panther I was intrigued and a little excited. It was during the holidays and I thought to myself WOW, I have to wait until 2018 to see this. Even though I am not a Marvel fan, I was connected to this particular movie. Was it because of Chadwick Boseman, Angela Bassett, or Forest Whitaker? I finally figured it out, it was the all black cast. The last movie that I saw with an all black cast was Coming To America with Eddie Murphy. Can our culture and community continue the unity, pride and cultural positivity that Black Panther has restored?
It’s no secret that we watch a ton of reality TV shows. From the Bachelor to WAGS, we make sure to stay tuned in to the industry and what’s trending. I’ll never forget tuning into yet another crazy season of Love & Hip Hop New York and seeing a few new characters wondering how they were going to fit into the plot and if this season would be worth watching. Well, Mona Scott Young casted the right young lady for this season. The minute I saw Cardi in her first scene I immediately liked her, her vibe and her authenticity with the audience. Nothing fake, speaking the truth and being exactly who she is with the cameras off or on. From that moment I started to follow her rise and at that moment America started to pay attention. Those 3C’s that made her brand explode are key to her rise to fame.
