In case you’ve been living under a rock, the movie “Black Panther” is the biggest thing going right now.
Without spoiling too much, one of the stars of the movie Letitia Wright plays the character ‘Shurri’ who is a princess but would rather we reference her as a scientist.
She may be part of a Royal Family but she doesn’t act like it (in a good way). With her genius intellect and quick wit, she is one of the best characters in the film.
Not only is the character great in the film, but has also been a real life inspiration.
Just ask Bakari Grant‘s daughter:
My daughter wants to grow up and be a scientist. She was so inspired by @letitiawright and Shuri from #BlackPanther that she turned her #flatstanley into #flatShuri…she wants to send her to #Wakanda Anybody got an address!? 😎 @michaelb4jordan @chadwickboseman #WakandaForever pic.twitter.com/XIiEkDZGU4
