The outfits worn by King T'Challa, Shuri and Okoye from Marvel's Black Panther films are going to be displayed at Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich.

The museum will be the only one in the UK to host costumes from the Oscar-winning movies, in an exhibition called 'Unmasked: The Power of Stories'.

It has been devised by a group of residents and community groups, such as the Ipswich and Suffolk Council for Racial Equality.

According to Ipswich Borough Council, who run Christchurch Mansion, the aim of the exhibition is to encourage people to think about how storytelling can unite or divide communities.

“We did not want to tell people how to get the most out of 'The Power of Stories' – we wanted them to take the lead, to inspire each other and visitors with their stories and, hopefully, to bring new audiences to the Mansion. This is what they have created.

Cllr Carole Jones, Ipswich Borough Council

The exhibition will be open between 4 July 2020 and 31 January 2021, with the costumes displayed alongside Marvel comics and other museum objects linked to storytelling.

Christchurch Mansion has attracted a reputation for major exhibitions - in the past 18 months it has hosted Rodin's 'The Kiss' sculpture as well as a collection linked to Suffolk superstar Ed Sheeran.
