Middle class students from the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta erupted into a joyous song and dance routine upon finding out that they had all got tickets for and were going to see Black Panther.
The school's director of curriculum and instruction, Wade King, came up with the idea of incorporating the upcoming Marvel blockbuster with the school curriculum. This will include the students using the BP comic books to learn about imperial history and African art, along with using the content during maths, science and gym lessons (Wakanda is a highly advanced country with genius scientists as well as superheroes who can fight).
Before finding out about their surprise outing, the students opened the meeting with an African-inspired spoken word performance.
This was sooooo cute. I didn't see it posted so I had to share.
