This week people in Brixton, south London spotted famous movie and television show posters that had been recreated to feature black leads.
Campaign groups Legally Black and Advocacy Academy worked together on the posters to highlight the lack of black actors in leading roles, before "subvertising group" Special Patrol stepped in to give them a wider platform across bus stops in the area.
So Wakanda happend right? Well why not a Black Female Doctor who? Let’s say YES to why not!

If ever there was something to make wading through the snow the day after a month in the Caribbean most definitely worth it - this is it.— Zahra (@ZahraDalilah1) March 1, 2018
