ReViewsForTheRevVoLution:: Black Panther and Black Love- a review

Movie Review: Black Panther


Action- This movie did not let me down with all the kick-azz scenes that kept me squealing with excitement and wanting more. The star-filled cast was amazing and perfected and the storyline tapped into my genetic memory bank.


Black Panther From A Black Disability Viewpoint Comparing Two Characters: (One Black woman and the other White Man) Queen Ramonda & Ulysses Klaw.

The Revolution Continues: Ahmed Salah and the Arab Spring

“I was anticipating a breakthrough -- hoping that the protest would not be instantly dispersed by riot police, like so many previous marches.

-Ahmed Salah, speaking to Washington Post reporter Jackson Diehl
