“Wakanda is not African, and that's OK”, by Nanjala Nyabola for Al Jazeera
But we must see the film in its proper place. That place isn't Africa, and that's okay. It wouldn't be fair to expect one film to take on the burden of representation for a whole continent when it is already fighting for the visibility and representation of over 40 million African Americans in an industry that refuses to see them as more than a token. This is a triumph of African American filmmaking and should be celebrated as such without leaning on Africa as a marketing crutch.

Etymological map of Africa - What is in a (geographical) name?
This map is interesting and evocative. Some of the names remind us of beautiful things; others of sad things – but certainly of the history and diversity of Africa.
