Style and Activism Unite at New Jersey Young Democrats Black Panther Movie Premiere

Politics and pop culture intersected last Thursday at the New Jersey Young Democrats Black Caucus movie premiere event. The Black-Tie affair and fundraiser commemorated the new Marvel Comics superhero film, Black Panther, with an exclusive preview screening in Newark. #HipNJ recognizes the timely event that unites style, pop culture and activism.

 The screening held on February 15th gave viewers an exclusive look at the critically-acclaimed film before the public release. CityPlex12, a theatre co-owned by Newark native Shaquille O’Neal, hosted the night’s festivities.

NJYD Black Caucus President, Keith Jones II, describes the night that honored the historical pop culture moment. “You could feel the energy in the room last night” describes Jones, “It felt like a celebration of our culture, a moment of pride and unity, and culminated in excitement about the genuine representations of people of African descent we’d get to see on screen.  With everything that is going on in the world, particularly in these last few days, it was nice to experience something that would lift our spirits, even for just a few hours”.

Attendees from all over New Jersey came out dressed to impress in formal wear and outfits inspired by traditional African clothing.

The NJYD Black Caucus is an offshoot from the New Jersey Young Democrats organization. Their ambition is to utilize education as a means of motivating young voters into becoming more politically active.
