Objects from the international box office hit “Black Panther” will be added to the collection of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The Smithsonian listed popular items on their website such as the King of Wakanda T’Challa’s form-fitting vibranium Black Panther suit, the entire shooting script of the film that’s autographed, two pages of a spec script earlier written and behind-the-scenes photographs of “documenting the filmmaking process.”

The museum said in a statement, “‘Black Panther’ illustrates the progression of blacks in film, an industry that in the past has overlooked blacks, or regulated them to flat, one-dimensional and marginalized figures… The film, like the museum, provides a fuller story of black culture and identity.”

The Smithsonian also commented on the Marvel’s film “Afrofuturistic vibe” which is relatable to many African countries’ innovations. The museum’s curator of film and photography Rhea Combs added, “I think the film presented notions of African regality, dignity, modernity and respect for culture and tradition that many people felt proud to see represented onscreen.”

The “Black Panther” items were acquired in February and will be on display at the Smithsonian from Oct. 24. to Oct. 27.

We're excited to announce the acquisition of several objects related to Black Panther! ‍♀️‍♂️‍♀️‍♂️Black…
