Special to The Chronicle

I have recently watched the highly anticipated movie, “Black Panther,” which was more than amazing from the opening credits to the closing credits.

Watching “Black Panther” was a historic moment for me because it is said to be the first movie with an African-American cast to go mainstream. As I researched the producer, it came to my attention that Ryan Coogler made this production at 31 years old.

Mr. Coogler also made other hit movies at a young age, such as “Fruitvale Station” at 27, and “Creed” at 29. Seeing young people have great success at an early age encourages me to work harder to be productive.

“Black Panther” also was great because it portrayed Africa as being more technologically advanced than any other civilization in the world. This will inspire more people of color to work toward careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

Seeing a superhero on the big screen that looks like me was exciting and worth the wait. Hopefully this will be the first of many!
