What: A conversation about the Black Panther

When: Thursday, March 29 at 1:00 EST (yes, that is right before Love Feast)

Where: Online
By video:
By phone: Dial +1 415 762 9988. Your meeting ID is 604705231 and no participant ID is required.

Why: Because this movie is a cultural phenomena. Because no one believed a movie starring an African American cast could become an international blockbuster. Because it has sparked many interesting conversations about race in the United States. Because comic books draw on Judeo-Christan images of the chosen people and messiah characters. Because you have a stash of mint-condition comic books and never thought you would get to brag on a denominational conference call. Because you went and watched the movie — more than once. Because no one else in your congregation is talking about it. Because you want to be part of a multicultural conversation about this movie.

Survey: Do Brethren watch "Black" movies?

Even if you are not going to be on the call, you can help by taking this quick (4 question) survey:
