February 2 Chadwick Boseman, born November 29th, 1976, was an American actor from South Carolina who most people know for his role as T’Challa in the film Black Panther. Boseman’s work opened doors for the Black community and his legacy provides powerful stories that will be learned from and inspire many. He encouraged and inspired all while privately suffering from cancer which later caused his death on August 28th, 2020.
