It looks like Wakanda has made its way to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture!

The record-breaking film, Black Panther will soon be featured in the museum.

The museum made an official announcement stating,

“Black Panther is the first superhero of African descent to appear in mainstream American comics, and the film itself is the first major cinematic production based on the character. Black Panther illustrates the progression of blacks in film, an industry that in the past have overlooked blacks, or regulated them to flat one-dimensional and marginalized figures.”

NBC Washington reports that the costume of T’Challa, worn by Chadwick Boseman will be on display. In addition, scripts used by the crew and behind the scene action photos will also be showcased.

You can expect to see these items on display at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in October during the museum’s first-ever Smithsonian African American Film Festival.
