‘Black Panther’ Star Chadwick Boseman Dies of Cancer at 43

Chadwick Boseman, who found fame as the star of the groundbreaking film “Black Panther”
and who also portrayed pioneering Black figures like Jackie Robinson, James Brown and
Thurgood Marshall, died on Friday. He was 43.

A statement posted on his Instagram account said he learned in 2016 that he had Stage 3
colon cancer and that it had progressed to Stage 4. It said he died in his home with his wife
and family by his side, though it did not say where he lived.

“A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you
have come to love so much,” the statement said. “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.”

@Region Philbis,
How terribly sad. I've lost friends and family to colon cancer, four were under 45...I really wish colonoscopies were regularly performed starting at age 35. Rest In Peace.
