Black Panther Q&A - 6CR #22

July 13, 2018

Our most succesful episode from season 1 was Wakanda Forever? and consequently we received a number of questions from listeners. Darnell & Joel address the following listener questions:

  1. Is it possible to be a pan-Africanist and a Christian at the same time?
  2. Why was Killmonger's attempt to liberate black people from white oppression so appealing to some black people? 
  3. Can you please elaborate on the principles of the African diaspora and it's impact on the Black Psyche?
