Saudi Arabia is looking to end its 35-year cinema ban, and the film chosen to break down that particular wall is, of course, Black Panther.

If anyone ever tells you that it’s too late to pick up a new hobby or follow a passion, or change anything about your life, feel free to look them directly in the eye and call them a liar, because this Wakandan elder has proved otherwise.

We all know it’s a white man’s world, but through our magic, women of color manage to make this world ours. From Black Panther being an ode to black women, to women of color taking over the 2018 Winter Games, it’s hard to deny the power of women right now.
When tickets for Black Panther went on sale late last month, we here at The Root just knew it was our duty, as the unofficial news source of Wakanda, to be there on the first night.
