‘Black Panther: A Cultural Exploration’ Charts the Influences, People, and Times That Shaped The Iconic Marvel Comics Characater

Take an engrossing deep dive into the cultural influences of Black Panther, from the development of the Marvel Comics character in the 1960s to his current worldwide renown.

Black Panther was created in 1966 by the legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the midst of the civil rights movement and just before the birth of the Black Panther Party. Subsequent creators have drawn from global history and the ever-evolving Black experience to breathe new life into the character, weaving in stories of both oppression and triumph.

Black Panther: A Cultural Exploration delves into the compelling backstory, including:

  • A full history of Black Panther, from the character’s comics debut to current comics and film appearances
  • Iconic artwork and quotes from decades of Marvel comics
  • A breakdown of real-world influences that helped inform the society and culture of Wakanda

Connecting the world of Black Panther with cultural and historical touchpoints and the community of readers whose lives were shaped by the character and his comics, Black Panther: A Cultural Exploration explores the worlds, myths, music, and histories that contributed to the comic’s evolution.

“It was an absolute pleasure writing this book and interviewing people who hold their memories of reading

Marvel’s Black Panther close to their hearts.  It was a joy writing about cultural moments and creatives who shaped the Black Panther story and in turn shape us. The Black Panther mythos is a reigning beacon among Afrofuturist creations. I’m delighted that I could capture some of the magic that brought this story to life.” – Ytasha L. Womack
