Winner

Black Panther

 

It’s rare that a cultural moment unites Black people not just across the U.S., but across the world. With Black Panther, people were excited to finally have a big budget film led by a Black filmmaker and a predominantly Black cast, and the movie definitely lived up to the hype.

But Black Panther wasn’t just a great superhero movie. It was a reunion of family and friends, it was a discussion, it was an opportunity for Black people to dress up and take up space in the best possible way.

It was also a viral dance sensation that spread from the U.S. to the U.K. to Africa. What other movie has united Black people across the lands and seas in such a way?

BP was a complete winner.

Many brands in 2018 revealed they couldn’t possibly have a Black person in their marketing department, or else we wouldn’t get cringe-worthy “Coolest Monkey” hoodies on Black kids like H&M.

Even as 2018 came to a close, brands still didn’t seem to learn their lesson. In December, Forever 21 thought it would be cute to put a “Wakanda Forever” sweater on a White model and folks were not having it.

Smh.

When it comes to Black culture…Black people to the front of the boardroom, please!
