BLACK PANTHER Inspired Disney to Donate One Million Dollars to Help Fund STEM Center

I freaking loved Black Panther. It may be new favorite Marvel film. It was incredible, to say the least, so I will do my best to not get into details. During the end, some stuff happens and it seems to be an inspiration for Disney as they will be donating $1 million dollars to the Boys & Girls Club of America so that it can expand upon its STEM programs. In case you are unaware, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This donation will help open a new STEM Center of Innovation in Oakland, California as well as centers in 11 other cities including Atlanta, Georgia, Baltimore, Maryland, and New Orleans, Louisiana. Following the donation, CEO of Disney, Bob Iger, said:

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is a masterpiece of movie making and has become an instant cultural phenomenon, sparking discussion, inspiring people young and old, and breaking down age-old industry myth. It is thrilling to see how inspired young audiences were by the spectacular technology in the film, so it’s fitting that we show our appreciation by helping advance STEM programs for youth, especially in underserved areas of the country, to give them the knowledge and tools to build the future they want.
