On 28th August 2020 actor Chadwick Boseman died from colon cancer after a four-year battle with the disease. I just don’t have the words. His name will go down in history, he delivered a cinematic experience for all to witness in 2018: Black Panther. It was a movie that acknowledges and celebrates everything from traditional African society to African-American political debates, from the power and beauty of black women to the preservation of identity, all within the lush confines of the fictional African nation of Wakanda.
If I could talk to Chadwick Boseman I would want to say thank you so much for making Black Panther. I can’t express how much it means to me and the community and my family. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for all that you’ve done, for really being a hero that made history both on and off the screen. Being a massive marvel fan after hearing the news about his death really rattled me ; but his legacy will not be forgotten.
“In my culture…death is not the end…it is more of a stepping off point” – T’Challa,played by Chadwick Boseman said in Captain America Civil war.
Rest in peace. KING.HERO.LEGEND🖤
