With films like “Fruitvale Station,” “Selma,” and “Moonlight” earning critical acclaim in the past few years, Chadwick Boseman says “Black Panther” was the “confirmation” that films about black experiences and history aren’t going away.

“Some people thought that might’ve just been a fluke or a trend whereas what people are realizing now is, ‘Wow, there is a wealth and there’s a market of stories here,'” the “Black Panther” star tells Viggo Mortensen during Variety’s Actors on Actors series.

“When you think about African history, African-American history, and this is probably true of Latino history,” Boseman continues. “When you leave out a great part of what has made this nation, all of the contributions, you’re also leaving out a lot of great stories.”
