“Immeasurable grief”. Our hearts are reeling from the hurt of this loss. The weight of his absence is palpable. Just 7 days ago, on Friday, August 28, 2020, Chadwick Aaron Boseman took flight out of this world. The vast majority of us did not know he was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016, through “countless surgeries and chemotherapy” he exhibited incredible strength and fortitude that was other-worldly. Through that time he freely gave us such works as Marshall, a look into the life of a young Thurgood Marshall; 21 Bridges, an action thriller in which he starred and produced; Da 5 Bloods; August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and the historic role that ignited a movement, that of King T’Challa in Marvel’s Black Panther which firmly placed his already well-respected career into stratospheric heights.
Chadwick, we love you and hope you felt that outpouring during your earthly sojourn. We miss you deeply and we thank you for your selflessness and strength in leaving a layered legacy for us, our children, and generations to come. Rest well young king.
We ponder words of remembrance of 7 women who experienced an infinite artistic connection with Chadwick.
