Late last month, Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler attended the Fellows Session at Ghetto Film School, an award-winning nonprofit founded in 2000 to educate, develop and celebrate the next generation of great American storytellers, in Los Angeles.
Coogler was there to surprise 30 students by announcing that Synchrony Bank, a promotional parter on “Black Panther,” is donating a $50,000 grant to the Ghetto Film School Fellows program and invited them to the world premiere of “Black Panther.” Watch the surprise above!
