Who is Chadwick Boseman?
Chadwick Boseman (November 29, 1976 – August 28, 2020) was an African-American actor from Anderson, South Carolina. He got his first role in 2003 on Third Watch. The same year he played Reggie Montgomery on the soap opera All My Children. He was fired from All My Children for voicing his concerns about the racist stereotypes in the script. He’s written plays and he’s played numerous roles as black men who broke racial barriers.
Chadwick is a real life super hero! The fact that he filmed several movies such as Marshall, Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and others while battling colon cancer is absolutely amazing. Where did he muster the strength to get up everyday to film movies? He exemplifies the strength and endurance of a black man. When we watched him in the movie Black Panther it didn’t seem like we were watching a movie, it seemed like we were watching our African King!
Colon cancer is a cancer of the colon or rectum, located at the digestive tract’s lower end. Colon cancer usually affects older adults, but it can happen to adults at any age!
