When I could not sleep on Friday, I was about to use one of the You Tube black screens that help you fall asleep, I saw CNN or MSNBC had breaking news about Chadwick Boseman dying of colon cancer. I have lost a grandmother and grandfather to cancer and this hurts. Wakanda Forever! Love you both and the TBGWT Nation!

Although it is always hard to be Black, 2017 made it more acute. Black Panther sparked something not just in me but in so many Black children and adults around me. That last time I had witnessed the feeling of collective hope was when Barack Obama won the 2008 election. Maybe that’s a bit hyperbole, but I work with children so they connect more with a superhero than a politician. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen that movie. Every few months I either watch the entire film, the trailer, or the crowning ceremony. I recently watched it, and I cried at the end (like I always do) because that movie makes me so happy. I remember following the news during the pre-production of the movie, and getting more and more excited with every tidbit Marvel released. At one point, the running joke among my friends is that soon they’d be announcing we were starring in the movie because it seemed Black Panther was employing every Black person born. lol. In retrospect, I couldn’t think of one Black Actor that could have been cast as T’Challa. Chadwick Boseman made Black Panther his, and, for better or for worse, that fantastic performance and movie will be his legacy. Thank you for bringing back the Chadwick Boseman Black History movie trailer. Still funny AF. I’m going back in the archives to listen to some of your BP and Chadwick Boseman commentary with my Black Panther and Okoye action fiction standing guard by my computer. Sorry for the long winded ramble. Rod and Karen, thank you for all you do. Rod, Karen, and the TBGWT nation, your work and dedication is appreciated. Wakanda Forever.
