Kids treated to Black Panther screening after crowdfunding drive

2:20 min

Some 200 pupils from a school in a northern Stockholm suburb were treated to a free screening of Black Panther - the superhero movie that has received much attention for being the first with a mainly black cast.

The initiative came from the Stockholmer Nicolas Nath, who chose to collaborate with the Järva school because a majority of pupils there have foreign backgrounds.

And he does not agree with critics who say initiatives like this limit children by encouraging them only to have role models with the same skin colour as their own.

Similar free screening have been offered to children by entrepreneurs and celebrities in the US and the UK.
