The cast of Marvel’s Black Panther is still making their media rounds, and Wednesday morning, Lupita Nyong’o stopped by GMA.
Looking amazing in a short white dress accented with lace, Lupita Nyong’o talked about the social impact the film is already having on society.
“I think we all see ourselves better when we can see ourselves in someone else and this film,” she said. “This film is providing that to a whole new generation of people. I certainly didn’t have this representation coming up and that’s one of the things that drives me as an actress to tell stories about people that look like me and to think that I’m that image for, kids coming up is such a blessing. It’s such an honor and I just feel extremely, extremely fortunate to have this moment in this world.”
“It’s definitely for the black kids out there that don’t see themselves in superheroes. But also the fact that I was able to identify with white superheroes all my life. I think it’s a high time that, the other thing comes around.”
