Howard University’s Cathy Hughes School of Communications (CHSOC) Student Council hosted a special screening of the highly anticipated sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on Friday, Nov. 11. 

Several students crowded in The Regal Gallery Place movie theater eager to tune into the new film as well as the fireside chat hosted after the film, by Howard University’s Spotlight Network. 

“I loved the movie,” said Makenna Underwood. “Some of the scenes were tearjerkers. The cinematography was great. But the heartbreak that I felt watching this movie was insane. I came in expecting one heartbreak but then I got another one. I feel like I’m in mourning right now,” continued the council member and moviegoer.

Spotlight reporters, Jasmine Camille, Trevonae Williams, and Armani Washington, discussed the film and its significance to the black community.

Aria Wilson, another council member, says she enjoyed the movie experience overall. “I think events like this are important because of what’s happening right now—the community, the interviews, the photos. We can show the DC community, as well as other people in the Howard community that don’t feel they’re getting the full experience that we’re able to come together as a student body,” said Wilson. 

Overall, the event was a representation of modern Black culture.

“It [this event] was really important. To be able to see everyone at Howard, an HBCU, come together to watch a movie that has brought together so many Black people, it was really amazing,” said Underwood.
