Colour Palette Name: What Colours Your Spirit

This PowerPoint colour palette design was inspired by a scene in Marvel Studio’s Black Panther movie where T’Challa meets his Father in the beautiful Spirit World. The dominant colour is purple. Purple is a colour often used when talking about luxury and royalty. It is also used to convey bravery, aristocracy and in some cases spirituality.

In Memory of Chadwick Boseman

This colour palette is also dedicated to the memory of Chadwick Boseman, the 43-year-old actor known for his starring role in the 2018 film “Black Panther,” and for playing the real-life Black heroes Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson and James Brown.

Chadwick Boseman was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, which eventually progressed to stage IV. He passed away as a result of complications related to colon cancer on Friday, August 28, 2020 at his home in Los Angeles. His wife and family were by his side.
