In an epic shoot that was six months in the making, #TeamEBONY traveled to San Diego Comic Con where Black Panther: Wakanda Forever stars Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke and Dominique Thorne would make an emotional surprise appearance as they premiered the film’s trailer. With Wakanda Forever, the Black Panther crew was charged with the difficult task of continuing the epic saga while mourning the loss of their fearless leader Chadwick Boseman. For their cover shoot, the EBONY team evoked imagery that felt both reflective and hopeful as the cast embarked on the continuation of this journey. A sunset backdrop nods to the close of one chapter, while evoking a sense of hope for the future. 

Watch as the EBONY Power 100 For the Culture honorees and cover stars talk returning to Wakanda and taking San Diego Comic-Con by storm at their exclusive cover shoot.
