Well, that's what I call black power.

Well yes lol.  I think credit has to be given to the director and Disney for making it a great movie overall.  One thing I don't agree with are the assessments that the movie was a celebration of 'black culture'.  The reason I say this is because while the movie does do some VERY clever things with American black culture, this is more African culture.  I think that was one of the movies greatest strengths.  The heavy African culture I mean.   Black folks are as veried as the day is long and too often, we only see one aspect of it.  This was different and it works to great effect.   The criticism of the assessments I am making isn't literally but just a play on the words 'black culture'.  I am saying there are different forms.

I agree. There is a major difference between African Culture and African American culture. Africa is a massive continent and sub-Sahara culture is pretty much never shown. I think drawing on that was smart.
