Jacque Reid goes Inside Her Story with novelist Roxane Gay, Marvel’s first African American woman writer. She will pen World of Wakanda, a new series stemming from Black Panther set to premiere later this year.

“I had no idea I was the first black woman. I think it’s because white people take a lot for granted. I think they got very comfortable with their slate of writers. Ta Nehisi Coates opened the door for me and has done great things with The Black Panther,” Gay said.
