Chadwick Boseman: His Legacy and the Roles he Played

Updated: Feb 9

Late last night, we found out that Chadwick Boseman, only 43, died of cancer. He didn't share his illness with fans so it certainly was shocking news. Thankfully, this great man left us with not only the knowledge that he was a good, charitable, person, but he left the legacy of many fabulous roles. Black Panther, fictional but impactful, Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson and more.


Today I'm going to share with you some activities based on the famous roles he played over the last several years. I hope that you enjoy, and be sure to share.
