It comes with my deepest regret to share with you all of the death of Chadwick Boseman. Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago, and although he fought cancer for a great deal of years, unfortunately, the battle came to a peaceful end.
“In order for [Him] to Be a Good King, …one of the good signs of someone who is wise is they Designate Responsibility. …Use everybody’s skills. Don’t try to do everything. You can’t be everywhere at one time.” -Chadwick Boseman
Boseman was a leading actor for several important and iconic African-American historical figures such as:
Jackie Robinson in 42 (2013)
James Brown in Get on Up (2014)
Thurgood Marshall in Marshall (2017)
Superhero Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Black Panther (2018)
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Boseman won a NAACP Image Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance in Black Panther. Boseman’s other film roles included 21 Bridges (2019) and Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods (2020). His final film will be the film adaptation of August Wilson’s play Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom also starring Viola Davis, which will be released on Netflix. (Source: Wikipedia.org)
He died on Friday, August 28, 2020, at the young age of 43.
