In 2018, Marvel’s “Black Panther” had the world in a proverbial chokehold.

After this year’s Oscars committee messed up, a Chadwick Boseman non-fungible token (NFT) is getting a whole new redesign. Deadline is reporting that the NFT created in honor of the late “Black Panther” actor will no longer feature the actor’s likeness.

9 Holistic Health Practitioners, Herbalists and Advocates Who Promote Preventative Wellness on Instagram

Chadwick Boseman ‘s passing on Friday, Aug. 28 rocked the world. His fans and colleagues not only mourned his untimely death at age 43 but were also shocked by the news of his silent battle with colorectal cancer. Boseman was diagnosed with the disease in stage three in 2016 but remained tight-lipped about his health as he brought massive characters to the silver screen, including Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall, and most notably, Marvel’s Black Panther. And while Boseman’s transition has been an unfortunate addition to the list of lives lost this year, it has also highlighted the need for more Black people to get regular screenings for the disease. According to the American Cancer Society, Black men and women get colon cancer at higher rates —24 and 19 percent, respectively—compared to other races. Additionally, INOVA says that Black people have the highest incidence of colorectal cancer and have the shortest survival rate of most cancers. In honor of Boseman’s life and legacy,...
