Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Octavia Spencer has announced her plans to buy out a Mississippi theater when the much anticipated action film Black Panther is released.
In an Instagram post the actress said:
I will be in MS when this movie opens. I think I will buy out a theatre in an underserved community there to ensure that all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero. I will let you know where and when Mississippi. Stay tuned. #KingsAndQueensWillRise#blackpanthermovie
