Chadwick Boseman passed away this morning at 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer.

The news came as a shock to everyone, especially for fans and peers who were mostly not aware of the extremely private Black Panther star's past medical history. Tributes from his co-stars have started pouring in as everyone tries to cope with the loss of a man who was at the peak of his career. Boseman lead one of Marvel's most significant films in the production house's history and King T'Challa will forever be remembered not only for the character, but for what he symbolized to millions of Black youths and the oppressed around the world.
