Marvel Comics continues to highlight this year’s breakout Marvel Super Hero – the Black Panther – with a monthly video series that links the world of comics and hip-hop. Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part Eight blends animated comics along with commentary from Black Panther writer, The Atlantic national correspondent, and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates.
Within Marvel Comics’ Black Panther, written by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Black Panther’s surrogate mother, Ramonda, walks closer to death as her injuries from a bombing worsen and recovery is starting to seem like an impossibility. Plus: Shuri, Black Panther’s sister returns from the Djalia…but is she still herself? Something more? Or something of legend?
Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated Super Hero T’Challa, the Black Panther, the latest episode of this revolutionary multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples a brand new track, “100 Black Panthers” by Kipp Stone.
“It feels really good having the opportunity to work Marvel,” said Stone. “I have always rocked with Marvel characters when it comes to superheroes, so doing a song that reps Black Panther wasn’t that hard. He stands for what I stand for, solidarity, strength and loyalty.”
