The Marvel Superhero movie "Black Panther" is a huge box office hit, disproving the long-held Hollywood belief that a film rooted in black culture with a black director and a majority black cast can't draw a wide audience. On The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the film and its impact on the industry. Will diversity and inclusion stay in the Holywood script? And we'll look at its broader impact on our culture. Then, we'll learn about the medicine and ailments available during Balto's time, as part of the "Think and Drink with the Extinct" event at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.



Think and Drink with the Extinct: February 21st at 5pm - Journey in time with our partners at the Dittrick Museum of Medical History and learn about the medicines and ailments of Balto's time.
