The event was attended by hundreds of fans in costumes, and included food and live music.
It was also a sequel for City Councilman John Taylor Chapman’s Manumission Tour Company and Elijah Walter Griffin, Sr.’s Griffin Vision Media. The team collaborated for their first screening at the now-demolished Potomac Yard movie theater when the first Black Panther released in 2018.
“It’s very important to the city to have events like this,” Griffin said. “Everybody’s excited to see this movie, and it’s important because we need more Black heroes.”
The event was sponsored by National Capital Bank of Washington, fibre space, the Debra Deneise Smith Foundation, Colorectal Cancer Alliance, The Rub and Hen Quarter, Black upStart, kweliTV, SpottedMP, Beverly Tatum, Realtor, Virginia Black Lifestyle Magazine and Dyvine BBQ.
Incidentally, Alexandria (at least the name) was a featured location in the movie.
