Chadwick Boseman: Wakanda Forever


Keith Curtis

   Chadwick Boseman, the amazing actor and man behind the Black Panther passed away August 28th. Boseman’s life ended quicker than he wanted (at 43), but no one would have even thought. He kept all his problems and pain to himself. He did movies, interviews, red carpets, award shows, and more while he suffered from colon cancer and was going through treatment. 

   Chadwick Boseman brought a new excitement to the world, especially for young black children when he starred in Black Panther. Black Panther, the first main black superhero to reach the movie theaters gave hope to many young children around the world. 

   Chadwick Boseman was born in South Carolina, and went to college at Howard University, where he graduated with a degree of Doctor of Humane Letters. Before his famous role in Black Panther Boseman played star roles as Jackie Robinson, James Brown, and Thurgood Marshall (many more). He was nominated for many awards and won many such as Best Actor, Most Promising Performer, Outstanding Breakthrough Performance, Best Performance in a movie, Favorite Superhero, Male Movie Star of the Year, and many more. 

   Boseman kept his personal life very private. He was secretly married back in 2015 until he finally told his family. He was also very secretive about his sickness. Boseman very well did his amazing role as Black Panther while fighting his battle with cancer. It’s very clear to say that we lost a legend too soon… Gone but Never Forgotten, Chadwick Boseman 1976-2020 (WAKANDA FOREVER).
