Better Jobs With Companies That Care

Feb. 20th 2018

Did you get a chance to see Black Panther over the holiday weekend? If not, it's ok- we know it was sold out in many theatres across the country, so no spoilers here, we promise! What we can (and are dying) to talk about is how this movie is elevating black women (at least one woman is in almost every scene!). Just when we thought Wonder Woman was the ideal superhero, we now have four more female super-women who actually fight with their intelligence and inner strength rather than a potion or a power. For the first time in history, none of the female characters are pitted against each other; they may argue and have different opinions, but they aren't fighting over a guy and definitely don't need one to save them. We'd love to talk more about this movie (spoilers and all!) and any of your other favorite superhero movies on Networks!
