Did you know that the inspiration for the fierce female warriors in Marvel's Black Panther were based on an actual elite group of West African female warriors called the Dahomey Amazons?

Join us as we learn more about the Dahomey Amazons, the frontline soldiers in the army of the Kingdom of Dahomey, a West African empire that existed from 1625 to 1894; Princess Yennenga, a legendary warrior & princess, considered the mother of the Mossi people of Burkina Faso; other African female warriors and leaders.
