Chadwick Boseman Lauds Student Protesters In College Speech

Don't ask Chadwick Boseman to do the Wakanda Forever sign any more Wakanda sometimes

In the end, the university agreed to a series of demands, including a re-examination of on-campus housing policies, the board agreeing to consider freezing undergraduate tuition rates, and the formation of a task force to address issues of sexual assault and harassment.

Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman spoke to graduates of his alma mater, Howard University, this weekend at the university's commencement, and said they should always be fueled by a sense of goal, and face life's challenges without fear.

Boseman told graduates he can relate as he, too, spoke up on what he thought were problems when he attended.

It's Wakanda Forever at Howard University!

"Many of you will leave Howard and enter systems and institutions that have a history of discrimination and marginalisation", Boseman said in his speech.

He said that the fact the students have struggled in the university means that they can use their education to improve the world they are going to enter.

In the soap opera Boseman played a young black man, with an absent father, and drug-addicted mother, who was lured by a gang. Jordan referred to the part in a 2015 GQ interview as a "f**king stereotypical black role". "Howard had instilled in me a certain amount of pride, and, for my taste, this role didn't live up to those standards".

They include a new heavy intercontinental ballistic missile, a nuclear-powered cruise missile with global range, and an underwater drone created to strike coastal facilities with a heavy nuclear weapon.

After he voiced his concerns to the show's executives, Boseman said he was sacked.

Today, having stood against the stereotyping of black characters in film, Boseman has played Jackie Robinson in 42, James Brown in Get On Up, Thurgood Marshall in Marshall and T'Challa in Black Panther. Everything that you fought for was not for yourself.

The Washington Post reports more than 2,000 students will receive degrees from Howard, referred to as "the Mecca" of black education in the USA, in 2018.

"Purpose is the essential element of you", Boseman said in his remarks, NPR reported.

"The struggles along the way are only meant to shape you for your objective".

Boseman also received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the university. "Your very existence is wrapped up in the things you are here to fulfill".
