Black Panther is a box office and cultural phenomenon. It is a great film that means so much to so many, especially those who’ve been underrepresented on the big screen. Fans have been explaining what the movie means to them and star Chadwick Boseman is listening, sometimes right behind the curtain.

Jimmy Fallon invited several moviegoers to share their feelings about the film in a recorded message for Boseman on The Tonight Show. That was cool enough, but as each person completed their message, Boseman, who’d been watching the whole time, emerged and embraced his fans.

You can see a couple more videos from Boseman’s appearance on The Tonight Show below.
