Chadwick Boseman Missed A Year Later

Chadwick Boseman's death shed light on colon cancer, but rates remain high  among Black people

Chadwick Boseman’s death caused a moment of collective trauma for the fans who adored him and for communities who drew courage from his example. As he was filming and still working, he was facing a private battle with cancer, doctors’ visits, surgeries, and the realization that his life may be cut short. He merged his identities to a larger than life hero to chisel away at the stereotypical Hollywood image and bulldoze a persona that still evokes a sense of pride. What strikes me most about him was his bravery to speak truth to power and courage under fire. #wakandaforever
