″‘Black Panther’ is groundbreaking for many reasons, including the rich diversity of voices behind its success,” Disney chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger said in a statement.

“The story also showcases the power of knowledge to change the world for the better, and the importance of ensuring everyone has access to it,” he added.

The superhero film, which has a predominantly black cast, garnered seven Oscar nominations ― including one for Best Picture.

Disney will also grant $1.5 million to the United Negro College Fund, which aims “to help minority students access and move to and through college,” according to Iger’s statement.
