Though “Black Panther” was knocked to the number two spot this past weekend, it would be remiss to deny the fact that the film has now grossed $631 million since its release in February. This makes the movie the highest earning superhero film of all time surpassing “The Avengers” and “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” which set the top standards in 2012.

Black Panther also holds the title of the third highest earning film worldwide, topping 2013’s “Iron Man 3” which earned $1.214 billion.

Black Panther reigned in the box office’s number one spot for six weeks before being taken down by “Pacific Rim Uprising” starring John Boyega.

Marvel pictures usually farewell in the movie sector and Black Panther is no exception. Not only has this fact been proven by figures, Black Panther has awoken a powerful movement amongst people of color.  Black empowerment is a major takeaway amongst other powerful themes.

The box office sales reaching over $1 billion shows that there is power in Africans when a formation is created especially from around the world, perhaps it shows the financial power of Pan-Africans and what can be done with such discovery – create radical developments?

Something great like empowering Black Excellence and bringing Africans together without the social dysfunctions of prior colonialism and it’s negative disadvantages.

It shows the masses that if looked at closely, slavery and colonialism have no factor in the reshaping, revamping and building of black excellence, Pan-Africans have the power to come together as one global force – diasporans, people of African heritages and Africans, can come together and build and empower – Could this mean there’s a possibility to provide aid without western intervention? Possibly!

Despite the fact that the movie will not be in the top spot forever; It has left a lasting impact.
