Welcome back for another installment of the 17 Waverly Podcast! This week we decided to give recognition to the star of ‘Black Panther’, Chadwick Boseman. Chadwick tragically passed away on August 28th, 2020 at the young age of 43 after a battle with colon cancer. While he may be gone, we will never forget the impact he left on us. So this week we chose 3 movies that he starred in for our discussion and reviews. We start the episode with a quick Black Panther discussion and then move to ‘Get On Up’ (2014) @ (0:15:00), ’42’ (2013) @ (0:36:40), and finally ‘Marshall’ (2017) @ (0:58:00).
