American Masters: Creative Spark

Hey! If you enjoyed our review of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, then we have a special treat for you. Today, we’re sharing an episode from the Webby Award-winning podcast American Masters: Creative Spark, produced by our friends over at PBS.  In this compelling episode from American Masters’ podcast, host Joe Skinner sits down with one of the definitive artists of Black cinema: costume designer Ruth E. Carter. This interview was recorded just *minutes* after Ruth got word of her 2023 Oscar nomination for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. And remember, she’s already received an Oscar and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, working on iconic films like Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, and (of course) both Black Panther movies.  Within this episode, Ruth takes us through the beginning of her career, how she started work on Marvel movies, the Afrofuturist approach (and hidden meanings!) she took when imagining Wakandan dress, and more.  Without sharing any other spoilers, here’s the episode… Learn more about your ad choices.
