It’s hard to believe that such talented people leave us too soon, and Chadwick Boseman is one of them. Celebrities honored Chadwick Boseman on social media this past Saturday as the world marked the one-year anniversary of his death. Boseman was best known for his role in the block buster movie Black Panther. He was also awesome playing the roles of Black American icons Jackie Robinson and James Brown before he was the beloved Black Panther. Chadwick was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016 and kept his condition private, only a very small handful of people knew, those closest to him. He continued to work, and he supported cancer charities until his death in 2020 from the colon cancer.

Boseman’s final film, where he was leading man is Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom was released the same year of his death. He received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor and a Golden Globe Award for Beast Actor in a Motion Picture Drama. Chadwick Boseman is surely missed by his family and loved ones; his legacy lives on in all of the wonderful roles he played over the years. His fans will see him as we always did, on the big screen but his family holds those special memories. My heartfelt condolences go out to the Boseman family. RIP Chadwick Boseman
