Howard University Officially Names Their Reestablished College Of Fine Arts After Chadwick Boseman

 

Back in May, it was announced that Howard University

would be naming their reestablished college of fine arts

after Chadwick Boseman, and yesterday the building’s

new name was officially put up!!

 

Howard shared a video of the school’s new name being

placed up as students walked in and out of the building

and said, “Yesterday, the letters were installed over the

now official 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.”

 

The news about the college being named after Chadwick

was first announced back in May. As

we previously reported, Howard’s President Wayne A. I.

Frederick said, “During his visit, I announced our plans

to reestablish the College of Fine Arts and he was filled

with ideas and plans to support the effort in a powerful

way. Chadwick’s love for Howard University was sincere,

and although he did not live to see those plans through to

fruition, it is my honor to ensure his legacy lives on

through the Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts

with the support of his wife and the Chadwick Boseman

Foundation.”

 

Back in 2000, Chadwick graduated from Howard

University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in directing.

 

He, unfortunately, lost his battle to colon cancer last year

at the age of 43. His passing sent shockwaves throughout

the world as many people were unaware of his battle with

colon cancer. His bravery in fighting this devastating

disease should be an inspiration to us all. Rest in peace

Chadwick.
