Abstract:

"Through a textual analysis, this book narrates the history of the character from his first appearance in 1966--the same year, the Black Panther Party was formed in Oakland, California--through Ta-Nehisi Coates' version in 2015. It tells the story of how Black and white writers envisioned the character between those years, as a Patrice Lumumba to a Sidney Poitier to a Nelson Mandela to a hip-hop cool to a reflective, 21st century king. Along the way, the limitations of white liberalism and the boundless nature of the Black imagination are revealed. Marvel's Black Panther is the first textual study of a superhero comic book character, examining its writers and the stories they have created over a fifty year period" --
