In this week's episode, we discuss the unfortunate and untimely passing of beloved actor Chadwick Boseman. This is a heavy episode for us, y’all. Listen as we talk about black excellence and representation in media, stepping into your life’s purpose, and living a full life. Dive in as we discuss medical racism and cancer diagnoses, facing your fears, and the power of human potential. Please check out the two documentaries that were mentioned in this episode: What the Health and Fork and Knife. Now go ahead and watch ALL of Chadwick’s movies.

Key takeaways from this episode:

1. People do not always remember what you said but they remember how you make them feel. it’s how you make people feel. He just seemed like a good ass person. A genuine person with grace.

2. “You don’t have to have the same exact experience as a black actor as you do a white actor”. -Chadwick Boseman. He was upfront and acknowledged the racial discrimination and race-based trauma and oppression in Hollywood.

3. What is the meaning of legacy? We don’t know why Chadwick continued to work as hard as he did but we are grateful that he left behind an incredible body of work. Brown and black boys will forever be positively impacted and inspired by his roles and who he was a man.

4. Something has to change. Things MUST change. We need research on brown and black bodies and we need to change the managed care system. Black men must have colon cancer screenings prior to age 45.

5. The year 2020 has forced us to reflect upon the lessons learned. Live your life with purpose and to the fullest. Strive to be more compassionate, empathetic, and walk with grace. This is the time to stop and pause and think about how you will live your life with intention.
