To say Black Panther has made an impact in today’s culture would be a bit of an understatement. The film has made a mark on film history, but even more impressively, it’s made an indelible impression on filmgoers themselves, spreading hope and representation across the globe.
Last night, star Chadwick Boseman paid Jimmy Fallon a visit on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Fallon is known for doing some pretty cool games and activities with his celebrity guests; however, last night he did something that really touched Boseman’s heart. The feelings were super real last night when Boseman made a surprise appearance to fans who came, unaware that Boseman was going to be there, to say what the film meant to them. The fans were brought to a specific spot and were told to look at a poster of the film and speak clearly about the impact and impression the film left on them. Then, after each fan spoke his or her own piece, Boseman stepped out from behind a curtain and surprised the fan. Some of the reactions are so genuine and quite touching.
