Photos: Here's What Went Down at OkayAfrica's #OkayWakanda 'Black Panther' Celebration

Brooklyn's black and beautiful came out in numbers to celebrate the biggest film of the year.

Ahead of the release of the most anticipated film since, what feels like, forever, OkayAfrica and Okayplayer teamed up with the Brooklyn Academy of Music to put together a night of celebration with an advanced screening of the film, followed by an intimate Q&A; with director Ryan Coogler and our CEO Abiola Oke.

As if all of that weren't already enough, we capped off the night with an #OkayWakanda afterparty. Folks were dressed in their best "royal attire" as the dress code required—and folks didn't disappoint in custom fits and colorful pieces from online boutique, Zuvaa.com.

It was an incredibly vibrant affair, and a fitting way to mark the release of the culture-shifting movie. Check out some of the action below, featuring photos by Travis Matthews and Staysuckafree.
