Chadwick Boseman passed away on August 28th at the age of 43. He had been secretly battling colon cancer for the last 4 years. He kept it a secret from Marvel and Disney with hopes that he would recover. The whole world was shocked when news of his death arose.
In Boseman’s hometown of Anderson, South Carolina, there is a petition to replace a confederate statue with the “Black Panther” star. It would honor the good he’s done as well as inspire the new generation of young black people.
