The Atlanta middle schoolers were all told that they would be seeing the Marvel film together, and the group immediately burst into dance with so much enthusiasm, it’s impressive.
“The students just found out we are all going to see BLACK PANTHER!,” teacher and director of curriculum and instruction Wade King wrote on Twitter. “We will have a day of cultural classes, African dancers, historical lessons, and then we will all go see the film! Turn up!!!!”
And turn up they did.

Founder Ron Clark himself tweeted another video of the kids—including one who whipped out some drums for the occasion. If you aren’t smiling while watching these middle schoolers hug and cheer about the first black superhero film from Marvel, please get your heart checked out by a medical professional.
If the name of the school sounds familiar, it may be because of their previous viral videos, or the fact that Oprah Winfrey donated $5 million to the academy in 2017. Hopefully some of that money will be going to the kids to see her in A Wrinkle in Time, too.
