The death of Chadwick Boseman has left the entire world stunned and heartbroken.
The ‘Black Panther’ family and the ‘Avengers’ assembled to mourn his death and pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman. Get the scoop.
Marvel Studios publicly mourned the passing of the Black Panther star saying, “Your legacy will live on forever.”
Angela Bassett, who played Chadwick’s mother in Black Panther, took to social media to share a beautiful story of how they were meant to be connected.
“It was meant to be for Chadwick and me to be connected, for us to be family. But what many don’t know is our story began long before his historic turn as Black Panther.
During the premiere party for Black Panther, Chadwick reminded me of something. He whispered that when I received my honorary degree from Howard University, his alma mater, he was the student assigned to escort me that day.
And here we were, years later as friends and colleagues, enjoying the most glorious night ever! We’d spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son. I am honored that we enjoyed that full-circle experience.
This young man’s dedication was awe-inspiring, his smile contagious, his talent unreal. So I pay tribute to a beautiful spirit, a consummate artist, a soulful brother…”thou aren’t not dead but flown afar…”. All you possessed, Chadwick, you freely gave. Rest now, sweet prince.” #WakandaForever
