Thought it would be necessary to acknowledge the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman here, considering the subject matter of this story. I've been drawing on a number of older sources for the setting, particularly Pauline Hopkins' Of One Blood, but it's obvious that Black Panther's Wakanda was also a giant influence. A non-colonized Pan-African Utopia is a very powerful concept and you can already see its effect on young black people as a source of inspiration.

Boseman brought a power and dignity to the role and held his own onscreen against flashier characters like Killmonger and Suri. I thought he still had his best performances ahead of him, and the sudden news of his death was a punch in the gut. Rest in Power.
