Africa, Dancing, and Family: I am struggling to find the words to express my gratitude at this moment, but i will try Filmmaking is a team sport. And our team was made up amazing people from all over the world who believed in this story. Deep down we all hoped that people would come to see a flim about a fictional country on the continent of Africa, made up of a cast of people of African descent. Never in a million years did we imagine that you all would come out this strong, it still humbles me to think that people care enough to spend their money and time watching our film- But to see people of all backgrounds wearing clothing that celebrates their heritage, taking pictures next to our posters with their friends and family, and sometimes dancing in the lobbies of theaters often moved me and my wife to tears For the people who bought out theaters, who posted on social about how lit the film would be bragsed about our awesome cast, picked out outfits to wear, and who stood in line in theaters all over the world- all before even seeing the film.. To the press who wrote about the film for folks who hadn't yet seen it, and encouraged audiences to come out... ones, who came out with their parents, with their mentors, and with their And to the young friends.. Th ank you for giving our team of filmmakers the greatest gift: The opportunity to share this film, that we poured our hearts and souls into, with you. Sincerely. Ryan Coogler P.S.

College, Fire, and Life: Let's Talk: Does The College Degree Still Hold Weight? @balleralert tate lIniurraity lniversity caulty habe confer Let’s Talk: Does The College Degree Still Hold Weight?- blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Postgrad blues have set in. Do you hear me? It has left me thinking about the decision I made to go off to college to pursue a career in….. well, that may just be the problem. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now before you all jump down my throat, this conversation excludes those who went to school for education, medicine, accounting, engineering, and-or computer science, or any other field of genius..ism. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For those who did not go to school for any of the above, now that you’ve graduated and are doing what you’re doing, was it really worth it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More recent than not, the thoughts of all the money and time that were wasted while at an institution to get this degree that everyone told me I needed has been heavy on my mind. It’s a known fact that now more than ever, people are starting up their own businesses, and financing their lifestyles via niches and trades of their own. No degree in sight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here I am, a recent graduate, and on a hunt for work. Because of this, I now wish I was less naive when I was graduating from high school. Social media has been a fire engine for businesses everywhere. You don’t need a degree to market yourself these days or to pursue your dreams in entertainment, business, etc. Not to mention the infamous “Instagram model,” who are getting paid to do…. What do they do again? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Education is important, yes, but in today’s world, it’s all about the schmoney, and right now, I owe a lot of that to my university. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ College comes with obstacles, only those who have gone can relate to this. Yes, you have a great time. Yes, you meet great people, and yes you learn a lot about yourself, but life provides that anyways… right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t get it twisted - my degree is appreciated, and I am proud of myself for doing something a lot of people can’t do, but now I can’t help but to think - was it really worth it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are some of your thoughts on college?
