Wakanda is kingless: farewell to the "black panther" Chadwick Boseman

Wakanda is kingless: farewell to the black panther Chadwick Boseman
He was the first black superhero to land a starring film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, playing the King of Wakanda three times. But let's talk about his most recent success, certainly not the only one in his career that could have, and above all deserved, to be more long-lived and even more brilliant. So we are preparing to remember the black panther of superheroes, the real and only Black Panther: Chadwick Boseman who passed away on August 28, 2020.

Passed at 43 years of age from a third stage colon cancer, a disease which lasted four years and which the actor had never publicly spoken about, Boseman is not to be remembered only for his recent Marvel success, but for a series of appearances in notable titles, which made him the capable actor and never chatted that we had the honor of knowing.

When an actor is born

Chadwick Aaron Boseman was born on November 29, 1976, a black boy in a land historically devastated by disagreements and racial issues. He sees the light in Anderson, South Carolina, an African American who had the good fortune to live in an era in which, by now, the dream of pastor Martin Luther King in his famous speech I have a dream seemed to be slowly coming true, but he was still far from the fulfillment of a peace project that is still prevented today, as the recent #blacklivesmatter movement demonstrates.

However, these are particular times, those in which the actor lived, considering that, during his studies at TL Hanna High School, he wrote his first play, entitled Crossroads, and took it to the school stage after a classmate of his was shot and killed.
