Thoughts About The Late Chadwick Boseman

Last night on ABC television in the USA they aired the movie “Black Panther” commercial free and presented a special on the life of its star Chadwick Boseman. I knew what a great actor he was and he played some very iconic people in his short career. The special also gave his “Avengers” co-stars the chance to share how special this man was to them and how “The Avengers” is not perfect without the King of Wakanda.

Chadwick Boseman is a name that sounds like someone with some gravitas and importance. He was a star on the rise. I admire his dedication to his alma mater Howard University where he gave a commencement address a couple years ago.

He could have earned an Academy Award at some point if he had the opportunity because he was just that talented and gifted.

What struck me is how important his role in society was especially when it came to inspiring people of color. You know I would love to see more roles in movies and TV like that. It’s important to have entertainment reflect life in general. People of color need to be able to share their stories and have representation in all of life. Nothing should stand in the way of that effort. He inspired people and laid the groundwork for the stars of tomorrow.

It’s the 21st century and its time for the colors of life to be shown to the world where everyone has a chance to have their stories told and to have heroes that look like them.

Black Panther, The Best Marvel Movie Ever!

Today I saw Black Panther and it was a masterpiece. It was more than just a super hero movie it is a terrific movie all the way around. Chadwick Boseman has a habit of playing great heroes and the title role of T’Challa/Black Panther is another terrific role for him. This movie does a great job of setting up the back story and carrying the audience into the present. Michael B. Jordan plays a sympathetic villain without going over the top.

This movie takes the best of African Culture and transports us to the fictional country called Wakanda where it is one of the most technologically advanced nations on Earth due to its supply of the fictional metal Vibranium.

Yeah this is a special film and in my opinion its the best made by Marvel. The upcoming Infinity War is going to have to do well to match the quality of Black Panther. I recommend you all see it on the big screen because this movie deserves it.
