Chadwick Boseman to Give Commencement Speech At Howard University


Howard University alum Chadwick Boseman will soon return to his alma mater to recognize the class of 2018, as the Black Panther star is scheduled to deliver the commencement speech during their upcoming graduation ceremony.

Howard University President, Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick shared the good news Wednesday in a official statement.

“It is an incredible honor and privilege for the Howard University community to welcome back home one of its native sons, Chadwick Boseman, to deliver the 2018 commencement address. 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. Mr. Boseman exemplifies the monumental heights and levels Howard graduates can achieve by using the skills and knowledge they acquired at the university.”

Honored to be included in the 2018 #TIME100 list.
