I’ve been working on a theology syllabus that might help people understand things that are going on in Black Panther/Wakanda, and it has been enjoyable and frustrating at the same time. It’s frustrating because how does one look at the theology as it relates to a place where the scourge of white supremacy didn’t infiltrate from a place where white supremacy is in the DNA? (and please, don’t tell me that Wakanda is not real. if people can write about the theology in Harry Potter, it can–and should–be done for Black Panther/Wakanda)
So I’ll be setting up a Black Panther Theology syllabus page soon.
But….the first book on the list is “Souls of Black Folk” by W.E.B. Du Bois. (you should read this just because, anyway)
I’m still debating how to handle Killmonger. He is less theology and more sociology and psychology; as such, he might get his own page–or section on the main page.
