He whispered that when I received my honorary degree from Howard University, his alma mater, he was the student assigned to escort me that day. We'd spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son.

"It was meant to be for Chadwick and me to be connected, for us to be family. Rest In Peace", wrote the official Marvel Twitter account. So I pay tribute to a handsome spirit, a consummate artist, a soulful brother."thou aren't not dead but flown afar.".

After a supporting big screen role as Floyd Little in the football drama The Express, Boseman started making more significant appearances on television, including ER, Cold Case, Lie to Me, Lincoln Heights, Persons Unknown, The Glades, Castle, Justified and Fringe. 'Thou aren't not dead but flown afar.' All you possessed, Chadwick, you freely gave.

Black Panther co-star Sterling K. Brown: "I don't have words. Rest now, sweet prince". "Your legacy will live on", the London club wrote, along with "#WakandaForever" in reference to the fictional land that Black Panther ruled over which has trended since the news of Boseman's passing.

Boseman's iconic role as King T'Challa/Black Panther brought him global acclaim.

Actor Octavia Spencer: "We've lost a great one".
