Chadwick was diagnosed with stage 3 Colon cancer in 2016 and battled with it all these 4 years as it progressed to stage 4.

A true fighter Chadwick persevered through it all and brought you to many films you have come to love so much.

From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, and several more, all were filmed in and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.

It was the honor of his career to bring King T'chala back to life in Black Panther.

Boseman died in his home with his wife and family by his side. He died at the age of 43 years.

Imagine the millions of children of color whose dreams have ignited upon the shoulders of black panther, you can't really put a figure to it, Chadwick was a real-life superhero.

Boseman was born and raised in Anderson south Carolina to Carolyn and Leroy Boseman both African American.

He then graduated from T.L Hanna high school in 1995, in his junior year he wrote his first play crossroads.

Boseman attended college at Howard University in Washington DC graduating in 2000 with a Bachelor of fine arts.

Boseman got his first television role in 2003, in an episode of third watch.

Chadwick was raised as a Christian and was baptized, he was also a part of a church choir and youth group and his former pastor said that he still kept his faith.

Boseman leaves a wife singer Taylor Simone Ledward whom He got engaged to in 2019 and later got married.

The world is completely heartbroken and at a loss for words, he had remarkable talent and his impact is truly unfathomable.

One of my favorite Black Panther quotes, "Bury me in the ocean, with my ancestors that jumped from the ships, because they knew death was better than bondage" Chadwick Boseman.
