Heartbreakingly, it was announced on August 28th, 2020 that Chadwick Boseman, the actor who portrayed T’Challa/Black Panther passed after a four year battle with cancer. He was only 43 years old. A native of South Carolina, Chadwick Boseman was making visits to children fighting cancer, as he fought his own secret battle. Not only was he a super hero, he played one in movies too.
Tonight, 8/30 at 8pm ET, ABC will be airing a special showing of Marvel Studio’s Black Panther, followed by an ABC News Special: Chadwick Boseman – A Tribute for a King. Be sure to have your tissues ready friends, I have every confidence that you will need them.
Rest in Power, King. Wakanda Forever!
