Howard College renamed its School of Fine Arts after Chadwick Boseman. Howard Collage had earlier this year announced that they would rename the College of Fine Arts after late Chadwick, a movie actor who starred in series of movies including popular Black Panter.
Chadwick Boseman’s Alma mater redeemed that pledge after the school officially renamed College of Fine Arts after him.
Chadwick Boseman died last year of colon cancer, a disease he battled with all his life. He graduated from Howard College years ago from College of Fine Arts.
“Chadwick’s love for Howard was sincere, and all though he did not live to see those plans through to fruition, it is my honour to ensure his legacy lives on through the Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts” Howard University President, Wayne A.I. Frederick said in a statement.
His family expressed their satisfaction to the school, revealing how he loved the school.
“Chad fought to preserve the college of Fine Arts during his matriculation at Howard and remained dedicated to the fight throughout his career, and he would be overjoyed by this development” the family said in May when it was announced.
