Black Panther is a box office juggernaut. It hauled in $201.8M in its first three days and will add another $30M+ today. It has been praised by moviegoers, including several famous faces. Black Panther just received another very special endorsement.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama praised the film and the filmmakers on Twitter.

“Congrats to the entire team! Because of you, young people will finally see superheroes that look like them on the big screen. I loved this movie and I know it will inspire people of all backgrounds to dig deep and find the courage to be heroes of their own stories.”

That is wonderful praise from a woman who is an inspiring figure in her own right. Obama is spot on in her assessment of the power of Black Panther. The power you see in the way audiences have embraced this movie is a reflection of the power it is inspiring within them.
