Chadwick Boseman was a hero to so many that a tribute to the good he's done and lives he's touched through his work is what we need to commemorate his life.
Chadwick Boseman passed away on Friday night after a long four years of fighting colon cancer.
Tonight, ABC will be airing a commercial-free showing of "Black Panther" from 8 p.m. to 10:20 p.m. EST immediately followed by a tribute, "Chadwick Boseman — a Tribute for a King," that will reflect and honor Chadwick Boseman's career and the imprint he left on the world.
While his battle with cancer was kept in private, his ambition to leave this world better than it was was nothing short of honorable and inspiring.
Some celebrity deaths really take a toll on us and Boseman was no exception, so this ABC tribute will offer comfort to his fans who admired and looked up to him as a hero.
"Black Panther" was a pivotal film for Black children who looked up to the Marvel Cinematic Universe superheroes because King T'Challa was their first Black superhero on the big screen.
While King T'Challa was an incredible role, his work as Jackie Robinson in "42," Thurgood Marshall in "Marshall," James Brown in "Get Up," and most recently Stormin' Norman in "Da 5 Bloods," among so many others represent the talent he had and the mark he wanted to leave in Hollywood.
Make sure you tune in tonight at 10:20 p.m. EST on ABC to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman's life.
