By Glenn Carreau

Octavia Spencer, Academy Award-winning actress and active proponent of diversity and equality in Hollywood (and beyond), is celebrating Black Panther’s upcoming release with an amazing gesture. Octavia announced over Instagram on Wednesday that she was going to be in MS at the time of Black Panther’s release — a movie that she, alongside masses of fans, has long been hyped for. Not only will the actress be the first in line to see the highly anticipated superhero film, she’ll be bringing a deserving audience with her. “I will be in MS when this movie opens,” she wrote on Instagram. “I think I will buy out a theatre in an underserved community there to ensure that all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero.”
