The Commission for Pan-African Affairs and the Cultural Policy and Research Section of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Youth were most pleased with the turnout at the private screening of Black Panther at the Olympus Theatres last night.

Set to be a night of entertainment, it ended up being an event of fashion, fun, friends, camaraderie, discussion, discourse and raised awareness.

As persons saw colleagues dressed in African fashion, with someone even adding tribal designs to their faces, people saw each other in a new light as they journeyed to Wakanda.

With a Caribbean contingent within the cast, it was like watching neighbours from other islands on the big screen.

Everyone had an enjoyable evening, viewing the film after brief remarks by the Minister of Culture, Stephen Lashley, and the  Director of the Commission of Pan-African Affairs Dr. Deryck Murray, along with a drum display by the Haynesville drummers.

The refreshments were served by volunteers from the Barbados Youth Service, before they too enjoyed the film.
