The news of Chadwick Boseman’s death was yet another collective gut punch.
I cannot imagine how this loss must feel to folks for whom he was the first superhero they saw on screen that looked like them. How do you tell your kids that Black Panther died?
I can’t help but think about all the characters we won’t get to see him play. He was already a great actor – 10, 20 years down the road, what great older characters could we have seen?
And as much as I’d like to think he kept his diagnosis to himself is that he was a private person and didn’t want his cancer to be the story – this is America, and we all know no one would have hired him if they knew he was sick.
2020 can stop now, thankyouverymuch.
