While Chadwick Boseman is best known for his role as the iconic superhero ‘Black Panther’, his upcoming performance in the Netflix film “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” was supposed to be an Oscar contender. Starring alongside the amazing Viola Davis, this adaption of August Wilson’s play is set to be released on Netflix later this year and will be one of Chadwick’s final roles.

My friend Chad is on the far left. We created something beautiful together. His last film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. The film wrestles with God. We wrestled with August Wilson’s text. We wrestled with music. We wrestled with faith. We shared such a loving brotherhood since the first time we did a reading together many moons ago at New York Stage and Film. Each time I always thought, he was such a shy, cool, kinda strange intellectual brother. Knowing him on the journey of Ma was a true gift. I will miss him and honor his incredible legacy that he built in 43 years. Goodnight friend.
