One of my favourite Black Panther quotes
"Bury me in the ocean, with my ancestors that jumped from the ships, because they knew death was better than bondage."

Chadwick Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer at a tragically early age. He wouldn't have had any reason to screen for it.
If you are 45+, you DO.
PLEASE get screened. My dad had it, so I get checked every 5 years.
Schedule it now. *Please*.https://t.co/swwEruz5bM

Absolutely floored by the death of Chadwick Boseman. What an actor he was. What an inspirational figure. I can’t even begin to comprehend the courage he showed in making movies while battlin cancer. And what movies. T’Challa, and Black Panther, changed so much in particular. RIP pic.twitter.com/PfpmuDna7P

The true power of @ChadwickBoseman was bigger than anything we saw on screen. From the Black Panther to Jackie Robinson, he inspired generations and showed them they can be anything they want — even super heroes. Jill and I are praying for his loved ones at this difficult time.

Chadwick Boseman — an extraordinary talent, and one of the most energetic actor in Hollywood I’ve seen.
His passing is a great miss. But God knows best.
