The purpose of the movie screening isn’t just so people can just watch the movie though, student organizer Leah Levels said.“After the movie is over, I want people to reflect on it,” Levels said. “We’re seeing black superheroes and their stories and struggles in the movies have real-life messages behind them that are worth understanding and talking about.”Thomas said he wanted the discussion to continue onto campus as well.“The movie has so many teachable moments that go inside the classroom,” Thomas said. “Students have a tendency to learn inside the classroom but they also have the tendency to learn outside the classroom, so if you can incorporate both, I think it’s a great opportunity.”The movie viewing starts at 7 p.m. at the Hulen Movie Tavern but students must be checked in by 6:45.  ESPN’s ‘The Undefeated’ writer visits campus, talks media coverage on Nike, Kaepernick ad Brandon Kitchin is a junior Journalism major and TCU 360 line editor from Grand Prairie, Texas.

A TCU-exclusive theater viewing of the new Marvel movie, “Black Panther,” will be shown Thursday night at Hulen Movie Tavern. The movie has been generating a lot of attention in the media for its star-studded and mostly black cast.“On a scale of 1 to 10, I’m like a 20,” Richard Thomas, Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) program coordinator, said. “I’m very excited to see the movie with a very diverse group of people.” + posts Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ Linkedin Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ Twitter Twitter Nelson Mandela’s former prison guard visits campus to reflect on their unlikely friendship Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ Memorial to commemorate MLK Jr. to come to downtown Fort Worth Facebook Brandon Kitchin Martin Luther King Jr. visited Fort Worth thanks to first African-American female graduate of Brite Divinity School ReddIt Previous articleAlpha Chi Omega Philanthropy EventNext articleCreative Writing Contest now accepting submissions Brandon Kitchin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddIt Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img
