BLACK GOLD is back at it again! Celebrating the best of black cinema and its icons from then 'til now, Black Gold celebrates the February release of Black Panther with a 20th anniversary screening of the OG Marvel badass: BLADE!

Widely considered to be one of the first modern superhero flicks, BLADE arrived in 1998 in a frenzied wave of radical black representation and '90s industrial goth aesthetics. Following the camp and sly postmodern winking of comic heroes adapted for the screen during the '80s and '90s (Batman, we see you), BLADE paid homage to its comic book source with a no-shits-given attitude and a killer post-John-Woo action style.

Wesley Snipes' BLADE (alongside supporting performances from underrated actors Sanaa Lathan and N'Bushe Wright) offered a template for black action stardom that was gritty, contradictory, and allowed black nerds everywhere to see themselves reflected onscreen. BLADE's commercial and cultural impact has undeniably laid the groundwork for the release of Black Panther twenty years later.
