The heart breaks even more when someone who you thought would be around for a long time as Chadwick Boseman, and then he is taken from us. Just when we thought Boseman was here to stay for a long time in bringing us many more memories through his work on the big screen…his life is cut short.
Despite his short time here with us, Boseman clearly made an impact not just in his biggest movie that is the Black Panther– but also through his thoughtful, deep words. 2018 was the year Boseman won an award at the VMAs for his great performance as “Black Panther” MTV replayed that acceptance speech by Boseman from 2018. It’s difficult to not feel a little emotional over the moment. And if anyone was confused about the focus of the awards show in its direction that night, Keke Palmer made she to announce the shows direction, saying:
We dedicate tonight’s show to the man whose spirit touched so many. He is a true hero, not just on screen but in everything he did. His impact lives forever.
This is truly another person just gone too soon.
