The Moment This Little Boy Got A ‘Black Panther’ Themed Prosthetic Leg
Black Panther not only ruled the box office this year, raking in over $1 billion globally, but it also had a significant impact on young Black people who finally saw themselves on the big screen as superheroes for the very first time. So when North Carolina-based tattoo artist Milton Purnell was asked to makeover a young boy’s prosthetic, he took some inspiration from Wakanda.
According to a video Purnell shared on Facebook, Mikey was so excited about his new leg he did a little happy dance after putting it on.
His reaction is priceless.
Four months after we first traveled to Wakanda it’s clear Black Pantherwill continue to have a positive impact on our lives, and more importantly our young people’s lives, for years to come.
