Robert Eaglestone defines culture as the invented ideas through which we live and that makes up our identity (Eaglestone, 2009). In the movie, the Nigeria’s culture was displayed. This is true based on the components of culture such as language, music, dressing and beliefs of the people in the movie. The characters in the movie spoke the Nigeria local language – Igbo upon the fact that the movie was shot in English. Also, music in the movie was produced using the local drums and local Igbo songs were sung at important occasions.
It also deals with the Hero and his journey, which is an important element of E.L.A that we learned before watching the movie. The movie “The Black Panther” seems like just like another entry in an endless parade of superhero movies is actually something much bigger. The movie has only been out for a month, and its cultural footprint is already enormous. The movie is about what is means to be African American in both America and Africa and, more broadly, the world. Rather than dodging the complicated themes about race and identity, the film grapples heads on with the issues affecting modern day African American lives.
As Africans did not gain control over their movie history until the late 60 's (Ukadike 1), the absolute control of colonial powers about which films are being shown in the colonies meant that movies presented to Africans were carefully chosen and reinforced colonial structures in all aspects of society, thereby imposing European cultural norms on the African societies (Barker 161). However, a shift occurred when the French and Belgians began to include Africans in the production of movies during the 1960s, ultimately allowing them to produce their own. Despite this progress, most of Africa 's emerging cinematic industry in the 60s and 70s was deliberately ignored by westerners (Ukadike ix), with only a few french journals advocating the developing African cinema until the appreciation began to spread. This expansion coincided with the immense growth in published critical studies and analysis of African cinema in a different, more widely spoken, language – English. Since English is far more spoken than French, the language switch facilitated the comprehension by westerners of themes portrayed in African
Having lived among the Benin people, the Onitsha people had picked up several Benin traditional customs. After the exodus, the Igbo people re-settled around Abo (Agbor) and further along the river Niger. All versions of the history of Chima confirms that his followers, recognized him as Eze (King leader) and that he was highly respected and later deified - which gives the descendants from Chima himself with four deities in their lineage. As the Ibo’s fled, they founded settlements and communities along the routes and the most adventurous carried on to the banks of the river Niger and eventually crossed the River Niger to another land warring land grab from the fishing inhabitants of Oze, Nkwelle and Ezunaka. King Chima was old at this time and died en-route to the new land, his burial site now a shrine exits to date.

Wegner of U.S is the pioneer of using films as a medium of teaching organizational behavior as well as management theories and concepts. The unique qualities of films are described by the film theories and film studies literature. Film theory also describes how film can enhance the learning process in ways unavailable in other media.

Film theories and film studies literature stresses on the unique features of film which makes it as a powerful medium of teaching.

These challenges posed a greater threat on the prospects on African history, culture and language, in which we are experiencing neo-colonialism. Thus, this paper seeks to trace the problem of history education from the time of the Christian missionaries with their introduction of western education to the establishment of mission schools, the taking-over of mission schools by the government, the place of history among other subjects in the curriculum of secondary schools, methods of teaching history, prospects and challenges of history teaching in Nigeria. The scope of the study is limited to private/public schools in Oyo State, Nigeria. There are 629 and 660 public and private schools in Oyo State respectively. Only few schools teach history as part of their
Woodraw Wilson (1887) defines public administration as: “detailed and systematic execution of public law (The Study of Administration, Political Science Quarterly 2)”. Public administration plays a role in successful governance as machinery is to a part of a manufactured product. Max Weber (1978) on the other hand propagates that: “economy, society and religion also have an effect on public administration (Economy and Society: An Outline of Interpretive Sociology)”. He therefore believes that a bureaucratic or structured government should be considered a more rational and efficient form of organisation and leadership. Nigeria has gained independence from British rule in 1960 and has witnessed four civil republics and several military interventions
