I don’t understand this History question and need help to study.

Analysis of the film Black Panther film from the Marvel Avengers series.

Final Part III (you still have to complete Part I and Part II of the final)=25 points of 59

The questions that will guide your response 5 paragraphs (250 words per paragraph) are as follows:

Using the theories and methods of anthropology we have learned in class, analyze the film Black Panther and try to explain the symbolism behind the fight between Killmonger and T’Challa.

  1. Think of all the themes of the class. Issues of egalitarian and non-egalitarian societies.
  2. Issues of ritual warfare, the History of Colonialism, Slavery, and ideas of revolution and Decolonization.
  3. Analyze the historical debates that the film portrays. More specifically, who represents the ideas of Toussaint Louverture (Haitian Revolution), Nat Turner, Frederick Douglass, of WEB Dubois, and who represents the ideas of Booker T Washington? How is that related to the History of the Civil rights movement, and to the local history of the Black Panther Party of Oakland?
  4. Also think of the life and ideas of Malcolm X his conversion to Islam and Martin Luther King Jr., and how both of these leaders were murdered and the relationship to the issues we are still living today with the movement of Black Lives Matter.
  5. You can also refer to the recent cases of Ahmaud Arbery, in Georgia and George Floyd in Minneapolis. And how that is related to the local experience in Oakland with Oscar Grant and the film about his murder by Bart Police in the Fruitvale Station.

So YES THE FILM BLACK PANTHER ADDRESSES ALL THESE ISSUES if you are able to decode the information and apply the theories of Hegemony and Agency to your analysis.

Thus, those of you that watched the film can do this option.

Again the objective of this option is to encourage all the students that did not read the book of Sherry Ortner or those who did not watch any of the films. Please take this chance to pass the class.

This is and additional source to analyze this important film.


Remember what we reviewed in Session Eleven: Decolonization, Sports as Ritual Warfare

In that section you selected an author and a video to discuss in your post.

So you know that there are many moments in the History of Modern Sports when African Americans athletes have demonstrated and declared themselves in support of the black liberation movements and for civil rights in the United States. And in our discussion you all demonstrated to be very familiar with the story of Colin Kaepernick and the kneeling down during the National Anthem before the NFL games.

Hopefully you also took the time to watch the documentary of the story of Local hero John Carlos and the African American Athletes in the Mexico City Olympics of 1968.

If you look on Kanopy, Amazon or Netflix you will see that there are many more movies and documentaries that can help you be more educated regarding these important issues.

Rise! (This film was taken out of our sources sorry)

In December 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, heralding the dawn of a new movement of quiet resistance, with the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as its public face. Before long, masses of African Americans practiced this nonviolent approach at great personal risk to integrate public schools, lunch counters and more.

Malcolm X Murder In New York

As in the case of Martin Luther King and of Gandhi, Malcolm X will remain in the pantheon of the civil rights movement. And like them, he will be assassinated. On the 21st of February 1965, whilst he delivers a speech in New York to mark the opening of the “National Week of Fraternity”, he is shot dead in the presence of his wife and children.
