“Wakanda forever…Oakland forever,” Zendaya shares on Twitter with a group selfie from the screening. “Thank you to all the beautiful young people of my home town for joining me this weekend. You all, much like this movie, are absolutely brilliant.”

“What an amazing day in Oakland with my dear friend Zendaya. It was an honor to share in the joy of bringing 300 young people to see Black Panther at the theater she grew up going to,” Skolnik added with his own tweet, sharing the same group selfie. “Her love, compassion + generosity for her community is beyond inspiring. Wakanda Forever!”

Zendaya went on to announce that Oakland kids are in for another screening when the upcoming film adaptation of Wrinkle in Time comes to town next month.
