7 Sep – The late Chadwick Boseman recently received an honour that would make him proud - getting his name up on one of the colleges of his alma mater, Howard University.

The university announced the news recently, stating that its College of Fine Arts has been named the Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts.

"An icon in his own right who has left an immeasurable legacy for the next generation. Thank you Mr. Boseman," it added.


The Black Panther would be so proud

It was back in May that the university announced that it will be renaming the said school after the "Black Panther" actor, who graduated from Howard with a Bachelor of Arts in Directing.

In a statement to the media, the Boseman family expressed, "Chad fought to preserve the College of Fine Arts during his matriculation at Howard and remained dedicated to the fight throughout his career, and he would be overjoyed by this development. His time at Howard University helped shape both the man and the artist that he became, committed to truth, integrity, and a determination to transform the world through the power of storytelling."


In 2018, Chadwick Boseman delivered the commencement address to the university graduates at his alma mater
