It's safe to say pretty much all of us are eagerly awaiting the release of Marvel's Black Panther.
This week, the viral hashtag #InWakanda gave us a look at what it would be like to live in the blackest nation ever created. Wakanda is an uncolonized, black utopia — a far cry from the world we live in, which brought writer Michael Harriot to imagine what life may have been like if we lived #InWakanda.
Some ideas were funny and some touched on the deep truths of our history, but all of them hit the nail on the head. Check out some of the best responses below:
