Good episode? Give it some love!
Chadwick Boseman, the actor, director and producer, most famous for playing King T'Challah in the 2018 film Black Panther, died tragically of colon cancer on Friday, August 28, 2020 at the age of 43. I knew Chad personally, and knew him to be a portrait of dignity, humility, grace, kindness, and passion. Chad wanted the best for everyone, and was a voice of empowerment for the young generation today.
In this episode, I pay tribute to Chad and the legacy he left behind, while also reading from the article: "https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/29/movies/chadwick… (It’s Hard to Make Dignity Interesting. Chadwick Boseman Found a Way.)" (New York Times, Wesley Morris)
