Lupita Nyong’o has now shared a photo of herself and Chadwick Boseman at their happy moments as she wrote:
”I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honor a man who had great hope. I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman, in the past tense. It doesn’t make sense.”
‘ I didn’t know him for long, but he had a profound effect on me in the time that I did. When we came together to make Black Panther, I remember being struck by his quiet, powerful presence. He had no airs about him, but there was a higher frequency that he seems to operate from. You got the sense that he was fully present and also somehow fully aware of things in the distant future. When I was around Chadwick, I wanted to be better, less petty, more purposeful.”
‘He was fuelled by love, not fear. He moved quietly, deliberately and without imposing himself or his ideals on others. And yet he also made sure that his life meant something. He was unwavering about that. He cared so deeply about humanity, about Black people, about his people. Chadwick’s death is something that I can neither take in nor take in my stride right now. Perhaps with time. I’m going to take my time and in his honor, I promise not to waste my time. I hope you will do the same.”
