Anaconda, Memes, and American: Vulture @vulture Amandla Stenberg backed away from #BlackPant to leave space for darker-skinned actors: "I recognize 100 percent that there are spaces that l should not take up." @amandlastenberg we see you 👏🏾👏🏿👏🏼👏🏽 . . Excerpt from article by Vanity Fair: “One of the most challenging things for me to do was to walk away from Black Panther,” Stenberg, who uses “they-them” pronouns, revealed. “I got really, really close and they were like, ‘Do you want to continue fighting for this?’ And I was like, this isn’t right.” . . In the film, Shuri is T’Challa’s genius little sister, the teen whiz who keeps Wakanda so technologically advanced. Like the rest of the principal cast, Letitia Wright is a dark-skinned black actor. Stenberg, who is bi-racial, said they wouldn’t have been a natural fit for the film. . . “These are all dark-skinned actors playing Africans, and I feel like it would have just been off to see me as a bi-racial American with a Nigerian accent just pretending that I’m the same color as everyone else in the movie,” Stenberg said. “That was really challenging, to make that decision, but I have no regrets. I recognize 100 percent that there are spaces that I should not take up and when I do take up a space it’s because I’ve thought really, really critically about it and I’ve consulted people I really trust and it feels right.” . . blackpanther wakanda representation wakandaforever
