Smithsonian’s African American Museum to Feature ‘Black Panther’ Exhibit

The box-office smash “Black Panther” has officially become a part of history, as the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture announced it will feature a exhibit highlighting the movie at the inaugural Smithsonian African American Film Festival in D.C. this fall.

The display, which will run Oct. 24-27, will include lead actor Chadwick Boseman’s panther suit, copies of the script signed by director Ryan Coogler and production photos and pages from the initial script. The exhibit will also include film screenings, discussions with filmmakers and scholars, and master classes on filmmaking, editing and storytelling.

“We are an institution that is committed to telling the story through the African American lens,” Rhea Combs, the museum’s curator of film and photography, told CNN. “What embodies the African-American lens better than a film like ‘Black Panther’?”

The museum also has plans for an in-house “Black Panther” exhibit at a later date.
