In a week of unrelenting horrible news, finally something good happened.

In a week of unrelenting horrible news, finally something good happened.

The Smithsonian announced Monday that they’ve acquired and will be displaying the official movie costume, worn by Chadwick Boseman in Ryan Coogler‘s Black Panther, as part of an exhibit celebrating African American filmmaking.

An article published to the official Smithsonian website said Monday:

“This fall, the sleek black costume will be on view at the National Museum of African American History and Culture for the duration of the museum’s first-ever African American Film Festival, which will run from October 24 through October 27…

The Afrofuturist vibe of Black Panther, well embodied by T’Challa’s technologically sophisticated yet culturally respectful panther suit, speaks to a growing capacity for innovation among African nations even as it celebrates their deep roots in tradition and ceremony.”

I mean, can you blame them?

The suit, designed by Judianna Makovsky, will be displayed alongside a signed Black Panther shooting script, a couple pages of spec script, and an assortment of photographs documenting the filmmaking process.

All of these items are being considered for a permanent installment after the film festival ends, according to the post.
