    Black Panther Star Chadwick Boseman Dies At 43

    Chadwick Boseman, the actor best known for his starring role in Black Panther, has passed away at 43. He had been fighting a four-year battle with colon cancer.

    The news was reported by the AP and then confirmed on Boseman's Twitter account, which states that he was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016. Over the last four years, it progressed to stage IV.

    "A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.

    "It was the honor of his career to bring King T'Challa to life in Black Panther."

    The tweet goes on to say he died at home with his wife and family.

    afskeid My brother. You have returned home. You helped show me that with work and dedication the door is open and no matter what the color or our skin the opportunity to be great. Africa bleeds today. But somewhere on that great plain he hunts.

    I was shocked when I learned of his passing.

    Through his movies, He was able to unite people multiculturally By displaying merits like Honor and acceptance and even care.

    The most amazing thing about him was that most people didn't know he was sick, He never once spoke about it publicly. In a social atmosphere where everyone craves attention, Be it positive or negative, He kept his personal struggles private while he continued to fight for equality for literally everyone.

    I don't know if he will, But This man should be remembered as one of the greats.

    I mean, Who, Ignoring their own well being continues the fight for others. Whether you agree with his cause or not. He was all in and in a completely nonselfish way supported others.

    This was a Truly Good man.
