Chadwick Boseman’s South Carolina Hometown Set to Honor Him
Chadwick bosemanThe city’s former playgrounds won’t soon forget their hero, as city officials rally to pay homage to him … every now and then.
Anderson, Mayor of South Carolina Terence roberts‘office tells TMZ … the town where Chadwick grew up will honor him this week at a public meeting, but also later with what we’re told will be a massive dedication.
As for this week’s plans … a representative of the mayor said they are hosting a souvenir Thursday at an open-air amphitheater, where they will have 3 guest speakers – including a pastor, a former high school classmate de Chadwick and the Mayor. himself. After that we are told that they are going to do a screening of “Black Panther”.
Now we know what you are thinking … a public gathering in an amphitheater ?? In a pandemic ??? Yes, but rest assured … we are told that the city is taking all necessary precautions to do so safely, keeping social distancing and masks in mind. The room normally has a maximum capacity of around 10,000 … we’re told they cut it in half. First come, first served.
Oh, and the place will be adorned with Chadwick themed artwork from the locals, so that will be great to see too. At the moment, it’s a little unclear if any of his immediate family members will join him, but some of his extended family who are still in the area are believed to be potential visitors.
As for a longer term tribute to their local star – who died Friday colon cancer – the mayor’s team tells us it’s still not settled on a final plan, but they know it’s going to be a big, lasting public exhibit.
We’re told that Anderson is known for his art, and whatever they decide to do could very well be that. Either way, we’re told it will do Chadwick justice and honor his life well.
Our sincere thanks to
