According to Fox News, a petition has been called for a statue of late ‘Chadwick Boseman‘ to replace the Confederate Memorial in his hometown, South California.
More than 30,000 people have signed the petition on Change.org. It is about to reach 35,000 within the first four days. It reads,
“He opened many doors for many young black people with his leading roles in movies such as Black Panther or Marshall. It is only natural that his hometown honors what he did. There is no need for political controversy in this decision.”
Unquestionably, his efforts opened the doors for many black people. He has ideally portrayed real-life Black role models like ‘Jackie Robinson’ and ‘James Brown before adding to the Marvel world.
Moreover, his iconic appearance as ‘Thurgood Marshall’ in ‘Marshall’ portrayed him as the Supreme Court’s first-ever African American Justice.
Interestingly, E! Online shared how multiple stars are responding to the saddening news of Chadwick Boseman’s loss. It explains the way stars like Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Brie Larson, and many more are giving tribute to the King.
He was an undeniably talented actor who did not share his condition with the world. It is remarkable how he kept working for his people. The most popular tweet ever also discusses that he went through countless surgeries and chemotherapy during his films.
In 2016, he was diagnosed with Colon Cancer stage III. Unfortunately, life did not support his struggle for four years while it progressed to stage IV.
The actor passed away in Los Angeles, in his home with his wife and family beside him. Heartbreakingly, his family has asked to continue respecting their privacy during this difficult time.
Adding to his respect, famous personalities gave tribute to the unforgettable actor.
The former US president Barack Obama called the actor ‘Blessed‘ in his tweet. Mr. Obama said,
Chadwick came to the White House to work with kids when he was playing Jackie Robinson. You could tell right away that he was blessed. To be young, gifted, and Black; to use that power to give them heroes to look up to; to do it all while in pain – what a use of his years. https://t.co/KazXV1e7l7
