Black Panther's Wakanda Listed as One Of U.S.A.'s Trade Partners on Government Site

A New York software engineer named Francis Tseng is going viral after discovering a major glitch on the U.S. Department of Agriculture website.

When Francis was looking at the countries that the United States does trades with via a drop down menu, he saw countries including Honduras, Colombia, Korea, Costa Rica, Peru and the fictional Wakanda from Marvel‘s Black Panther movie.

“The Wakanda information should have been removed after testing and has now been taken down,” an agency spokesman told The Washington Post.

Soon after Francis tweeted out a screen grab of this issue, the tweet went viral and Wakanda began trending.

Letitia Wright Reflects on the Success of 'Black Panther'

Letitia Wright is on the cover of Harper Bazaar UK‘s December issue, which is out now.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Black Panther star had to say…

On the roles she chooses to portray: “Early on, I would just say no if the roles weren’t progressive for myself or my community. You are told there’s not much for you. I just ignored it and I’m still ignoring it. I want to work with anyone who has something to say. If it’s meaningful and serves a purpose, I’m up for it.”

On the success of Black Panther: “After the premiere, it was overwhelming. I didn’t expect that response to the film. It was doing something that wasn’t done before and it represented the African diaspora. It also took the idea that an all-black cast cannot make this amount of money and slapped it in the face.”

On the all female battle sequence on Avengers: Endgame and an all female Marvel film: “It was a beautiful moment. We spent most of the time trying to convince the producers that we should get an all-female Marvel film. After every take we’d be like, “Did you see that? We don’t need the guys!”’

'Black Panther' Makes History With Two Design Wins at Oscars 2019

Black Panther has made history at the 2019 Academy Awards!

The film won two design awards at the ceremony held on Sunday (February 24) at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Ruth E. Carter took home the award for Best Costume Design, and Hannah Beachler – in Wakanda-inspired jewelry – won for Best Production design along with Jay Hart, who did the set decoration.

Both winners are the first black women to win in these categories.

“I stand here stronger than I was yesterday,” Hannah said. “I stand here with agency and self-worth because of [Black Panther director] Ryan Coogler – who not only made me a better designer, a better storyteller, a better person. I stand here because of this man who offered me a different perspective of life. Who offered me a safe space. Who is patient and gave me air, humanity, and brotherhood. Thank you, Ryan, I love you.”

“I give this strength to all of those who come next,” she added. “To keep going and never give up, and when you think it’s impossible, just remember to say this piece of advice I got from a very wise woman: ‘I did my best, and my best is good enough.’”
