Faces of Black Excellence

Changing history with filmmaking: here are 10 movies you probably didn’t know were directed by black filmmakers

Black Panther

Ryan was also behind the blockbuster movie, Black Panther, in 2018. The movie was written in line with Ryan’s desire to establish his cultural linkage with Africa. The power of black content directors transcended imagination when Black Panther was considered the movie of choice when Saudi Arabia lifted its ban on western films. It was not surprising when it crushed the box office with its staggering $1.347 billion worldwide. If there was any doubt about how black directors could push the frontiers of the movie industry, Ryan made a huge statement with Black Panther, which broke the Oscars with seven nominations, including Best Picture. By the time the curtains at the Oscars were pulled down, the movie had won Best Costume Design, Best Original Score, and Best Production Design, according to yard barker.
