King T’Challa returns home to Wakanada, after Super Heroes’ Civil War, to be the country’s king — but factions within the country are trying try to keep that from happening. Black Panther fights to prevent Wakanda from going into a civil war. The super hero joins forces with CIA and Dora Milaje .
The Dora Milaje are the personal bodyguards of the Black Panther, comprised of superior Wakandan  women — who are also potential queens for the unmarried king, and they only speak to the king or one another.
Now that you know the storyline, what’s going on with African-Americans? Are we hyped or what?  The internet is all a buzz about the movie.
