Just a month ago, Chadwick Boseman was lost to the world as a result of colon cancer. Through his role as King T'Challa in the Black Panther movie, he became a symbol of Black strength, courage, and pride. Beyond this blockbuster role, he also is known for his portrayals of Black cultural iconsJackie Robinson and James Brown. It is beyond us to faithfully explain the significance of Mr. Boseman's acting to our Black brethren around the world, but we have seen the profound impact of his death in your lives and honor him, his works, and what he symbolizes to all of us. 'Wakanda Forever!'
