Chadwick Boseman made some of the biggest movies of our time while battling cancer. Unbelievable. Amazing strength.
At least he was with family when he passed, surrounded by love.
He battled with Colon cancer in 2016 but delivered an Incredible performance, rest easy King T’chala.
At least he has left a lifetime record behind. BLACK PANTHER! Our African version of superman. God bless his soul.

“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman
Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the 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 during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
Rest In Peace
