EDIT: Guess there's no reason not to share my own thoughts, is there...?
Okay then, I can say two things. One, I never read the comics and know virtually nothing about the character, apart from his introduction in Civil War. And two, the same was true of ALL the other Marvel movies; I knew almost nothing about the characters beforehand and have thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them.

Not familiar with Marvel in general, let alone Black Panther. I grew up with the classic DC cartoons. But I do know that Marvel Studios has not led us wrong before. They know how to use the source material effectively and they know how to build on their characters, which is the most important aspect of a story to me. Fair to say you should feel confident.
If you've been following the MCU and are thinking about skipping this movie, don't. Not only is it an outstanding movie in its own right, with all the solid writing, engaging characters, and stellar production values we've all come to expect from Marvel movies; the events in it will also have an enormous societal impact across the entire planet Earth, and will literally change the world forever.
Yeah, I suppose you can catch up with online synopses and such before Infinity War comes out, if you really want to be stubborn, but...given the choice and the opportunity, why miss out?
