AHR Interview is excited to present a new four-part series on the recent blockbuster film Black Panther. In these episodes, AHR editorial assistant Charlene Fletcher speaks with four different scholars about their reactions to the film and what it evokes about the culture and politics of African and African diasporic history. The first episode features a fuller introduction to the series as a whole. Tanisha Ford is Associate Professor of Africana Studies and History at the University of Delaware and author of the 2015 book Liberated Threads: Black Women, Style, and the Global Politics of Soul.
