The WORLD is still reeling from the tragic passing of film great Chadwick Boseman.
Boseman brought to life so many ICONIC characters from Jackie Robinson to James Brown. One of the most EPIC characters he brought to life all while privately battling colon cancer was ‘Black Panther’.
While some are calling for the Marvel character to not be recast, there are countless reasons why the legacy must go on. This character inspired countless to dream again.

We too can be the pillars of strength when so many images of US are negative. THE CHARACTER must live on.
