New York [USA], Feb 22 (ANI): Activists are using Black Panthers, the superhero of the recent Marvel film of the same name, which stars a nearly all-black cast as a chance to increase the voter registration of the African-Americans.
The film is set in the fictional East African country of Wakanda, the WGN TV reported.
"It's a good opportunity to engage with more people of colour. And it's a chance to get out the vote and explain to people why they should vote," said Kristeena Alexander, who was in line to see the film.
The Electoral Justice Project, a movement that seeks to continue a long legacy of social movements fighting for the advancement of the rights of the black people through electoral strategy in the United States has been targeting excited fans with a simple message- "While you wait, send a text."
Texting "Panther" will give the fans detailed information on how to organise a voter registration effort.
The organisers said the goal is to see similar looking long lines with the people of colour on election days.
