Join the Friends of African American Art & Culture as we bring the cinematic experience of Black Panther to the CMA. The evening kicks off with a brief FAAAC year-in-review followed by an interactive conversation between Marvel illustrator Sanford Greene and comic book expert and USC professor Dr. Qiana Whitted.  Our journey to Wakanda doesn’t end there. Continue the celebration as we dance to the sounds of Afrobeat, sip on vibranium and heart-shaped herb cocktails, taste authentic African cuisine, and more. Wakanda-inspired attire encouraged. Cash bar.
