The Wilmington City Council and The Buccini/Pollin Group partnered with several city elementary schools to allow almost 1,000 students to see the critically-acclaimed film ‘Black Panther,’ the newest iteration of the Marvel comic series that provides a powerful message that is resonating with youth and adults alike across the country.

The sponsored private screenings took place on Tuesday, February 27th at Penn Cinema on the Riverfront. As part of this educational initiative, all student participants were asked to write a short reflection on the film – either focusing on what the movie meant to them or discussing a character in the film that resonated with them.

Participating students hail from Bancroft Elementary School, Bayard Middle School, Eastside Charter School, Nativity Preparatory School, Elbert-Palmert Elementary School, Pulaski Elementary School, Stubbs (Frederick Douglass) Elementary School, Warner Elementary School and institutions based in the Community Education Building.

The Buccini/Pollin Group was thrilled to have the opportunity to facilitate these showings and share our commitment to supporting positive youth development in our community.
