Marvel Studios announced that Synchrony Bank, a promotional partner on Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” is donating a $50,000 grant to the Ghetto Film School Fellows program.

On Saturday, January 27, the film’s director, Ryan Coogler, attended the Fellows Session at Ghetto Film School in Los Angeles where he surprised 30 students by announcing the $50,000 grant and inviting them to the world premiere of Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated “Black Panther.” The 30 students attended the world premiere of the movie on Monday, January 29, in Los Angeles and received prime spots on the red carpet to view the talent arrivals.
Following Captain America: Civil War, T’Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as King. His sovereignty is challenged by warring factions inside his own borders, as Erik Killmonger (Michael B Jordan) and arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) conspire to bring down his reign. T’Challa must become the Black Panther, working with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and members of Wakandan special forces unit Dora Milaje to prevent a world war.
