On Thursday, November 10, 2022, the South Carolina Community Black Caucus (SCCBC) will host a Libation Ceremony and private screening of Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The event will take place at 2:30 p.m. at the AMC Harbison 14 located at 122 Afton Court, Columbia, South Carolina 29212.
This is a fundraising event and will be the first screening of the movie in the state of South Carolina.
The Libation Ceremony will take place prior to the start of the film as an homage to our ancestors and the late Chadwick Boseman, a native of Anderson, SC. A Libation Ceremony is a ritual of pouring a liquid as an offering to a spirit, deity, or soul of a person who is deceased. It is a ritual that dates back to ancient times and plays a large role in African societies. It is a fitting way to honor Boseman’s legacy and commemorate the cultural impact of the Black Panther film franchise.
The Ceremony will be conducted by Jimmie (Ruttaskhi) Wright of The House of Hathor, a cultural center and boutique located at 6319 North Main Street Columbia, SC 29203. Hours are 11 a.m. to 7:00 p.m Monday through Saturday. It is closed on Sunday.
Event attendees are encouraged to wear African-inspired attire for this event and, in partnership with the Caucus, The House of Hathor is offering special apparel. Patrons who purchase an item priced at $20 or more have the opportunity to be added to the event guest list at the time of checkout and can also make a donation to the South Carolina Community Black Caucus.
The Libation Ceremony will start promptly at 2:45 p.m. The movie will start at 3:15 p.m. and last for 2hr 41min.
Johnie Cordero, Chair of the South Carolina Community Black Caucus, noted that the libation ceremony and film screening presented an ideal way to celebrate the organization’s mission. “Our motto is ‘Committed to Community and Culture.’ In keeping with the spirit of love verbalized within our mission, we found it fitting that we do this event in honor of our brother and native son Chadwick.”
