SCAR 9 - “The Gospel According to The Black Panther” - Coming in Spring 2021 - In this light hearted class, we will use various depictions, scenes, characters and plot elements from the blockbuster movie, The Black Panther, as a metaphor for our very “real” world. The Black Panther adroitly addresses powerful aspects of our nation’s history in challenging, yet, positive and hopeful ways. Our time together will be spent exploring the cultural and theological implications of the movie. Led by the Rev. Christopher M. Lee (aka, overly obsessive Marvel movie afficionado)
