The announcement of Chadwick Boseman’s death earlier this week broke millions of hearts
because our hero, as we know him, had just passed.
Chadwick Boseman was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer in 2016 and underwent several surgeries during the last four years before his death. His death was announced by his family as they urged the public to respect their privacy during this difficult time.
During his illness, Chadwick gave us epic movies that play into the history of Blacks and
Africans. You can experience his passion for the craft by watching these movies this weekend.
