Members of the Detroit Pistons can be included in the “Black Panther” wave that’s swept across the country. The Marvel Studios commercial and critical success is crushing box-office records, already surpassing more than $500 million in the 18 days since it was released last month. Set in the fictional African country of Wakanda, the movie is upfront with a Pan-African message that resonates with black audiences.
