Black voter registration effort launched at ‘Black Panther’ screenings

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide.

Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported.

Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.”

Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that's in the streets, at the city council meeting, or in the movie theater.”

As a white person I wouldn't go see the black panther movie for several reasons but mostly because I wouldn't feel safe,I think there will be riots and a lot of theaters will destroyed. After all that is what the black panthers do is stir up trouble.
