Commenting on his photography 4 the Black Panther Movement in the UK, photographer Neil Kenlock recalls “Pple were calling us all sorts of names in the streets & painting graffiti everywhere. In school, there was no black history...If you asked the teachers where black people came from, they would say: ‘Somewhere in Africa, up a tree,’ & that’s it. So w/ the Black Panther movement we had educational classes, public meeting & lectures."
I think everyone needs to take a chill pill who hate Tauriel, like, I think she was a nice addition to the film, a bit female badassery. There were no female characters in the book... She's a great addition!
