The recent release of the Black Panther film is an example of a film made for wide audiences, yet with a predominantly black cast, director, and black writer. In the history of Hollywood filmmaking this is a divergence, as films aimed at mass audiences have carried predominantly white male themes for generations.
In fact, accusations of the lack of racial and ethnic positive representations, or “whitewashing” go back to the earliest Hollywood films.
Some would argue that the Marvel Universe is an example of whitewashing. How does Black Panther fit within this paradigm? How does it resist the paradigm. Is this film capable of, instead, promoting diversity, ethnicity, or racial equality and altering the strategic narratives of whiteness?
