Chadwick Boseman, a proud alumni of Howard University is going back to his alma mater. Not to take classes but to give the commencement speech for the class of 2018!! How dope is that? Are we the only ones slightly jealous that our college days are over? *Sigh*!! We peeped the story over at the ShadeRoom. Here is what they are reporting:
According to @essence, Howard University President, Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick said in a statement, “It is an incredible honor and privilege for the Howard University community to welcome back home one of its native sons, Chadwick Boseman. He has played some of the most iconic African Americans that have transformed history, including Jackie Robinson, James Brown and Howard’s own Thurgood Marshall.” “His recent role in the blockbuster film “Black Panther” reminds us of the excellence found in the African diaspora and how Howard continues to be a gem that produces the next generation of artist-scholars, humanitarians, scientists, engineers, and doctors.”
We can just about picture all the “Wakanda Forever” salutes that will be displayed that day. Get ready for a social media flood on graduation day!!
