Remembering Chadwick Boseman

Remembering Chadwick Boseman

Chadwick Boseman Day, observed on November 29, is held on the late star’s birthday. On this day we remember the actor who sadly left us too soon. He was perhaps most famous for playing Black Panther in the Marvel franchise, but also acted in many feature films; he played James Brown in “Get On Up”, was featuring prominently in “21 Bridges” and played the legendary baseball player Jackie Robinson in “42”. Known for his humble personality and down to earth nature, Boseman died on August 28, 2020, from complications due to colon cancer. He was 43.
