The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture will temporarily house a number of objects from Marvel’s record-breaking film, Black Panther. For four days in October, the items will be on display as part of the museum’s first-ever African American Film Festival.
In an announcement on Facebook about the acquisition, the museum stated that the Hollywood hit “illustrates the progression of blacks in film, an industry that in the past has overlooked blacks, or regulated them to flat, one-dimensional and marginalized figures. The film, like the museum, provides a fuller story of black culture and identity.”
As of now, memorabilia will include the Black Panther suit worn by Chadwick Boseman, 24 exclusive production photos, two pages of a spec script, and a shooting script signed by director Ryan Coogler and other studio executives.
