Will always be in our hearts

Lupita Nyong’o plays Nakia, T’Challa’s lover and mother of their son.

“Three years ago today, I experienced a singular pain at the news of @chadwickboseman’s death. The confusion was so profound that it took months to trust the feeling of joy again,” Nyong’o posted on Instagram.

Nyong’o continued, “This is a photo I took on film at the airport as we arrived in South Korea in 2018. We had just learned to do the baby heart with our fingers. Here Chadwick was adding his suave flare. We spent a glorious 72 hours there, and the memory fills me with so much joy.”

Nyong’o added, “Death is hard to understand, maybe even harder to accept. But the love generated from the life he lived will fuel every anniversary marking his absence.

“Chadwick may no longer be in our photos, but he will always be in our hearts,” she said.

King T’Challa

Chadwick Boseman died August 28, 2020 at the age of 43 due to cancer which fell on the birthday of Black Panther creator Jack Kirby and on Jackie Robinson Day; Boseman starred as Jackie Robinson in 42

The illness was kept hidden from the public and the actor’s family described him as King T’Challa following his death.

“A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,” his family said in the statement. “From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more — all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.”’

The Instagram account of Chadwick Boseman is still active and recently posted, “When inspiration meets purpose, anything is possible.”
