7-year-old Boy Held A Heartbreaking Memorial For Chadwick Boseman

A 7-year-old Kian Westbrook learned that Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played his favorite superhero, had died, he immediately began crying.

Kian never met Boseman, nor is he familiar with the actor’s work outside of Marvel’s 2018 film “Black Panther.” But he did love seeing a face that looks like his saving the world on a big screen.

Kian told reporters:

He was a good role model to me and Black boys because he let me know Black boys can be heroes too.

When I found out he died, I felt very sad. I was crying and couldn’t stop talking about him.

Kian held a small memorial for Bossman in front of his home in Florissant, Missouri, on Saturday and all of his Avengers action figures were in attendance.

The young fan placed his Black Panther toy on a shoe box wrapped in black silk. Surrounding the box were flowers and an award metal, as well as an Iron Man glove to honor another hero who died on screen.

Kian’s father shared a photo on Twitter of the young fan standing behind the makeshift memorial and striking a “Wakanda Forever” salute to honor Boseman.

His twitter post:

Boseman died Friday at the age of 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer.
