Tribute to Chadwick Boseman

I was shocked and saddened to hear that Chadwick Boseman passed on Friday at the age of 43. Although he may be gone, he nevertheless left us a helluva legacy with his body of work, especially those he completed after being diagnosed in 2016.

I just wanted to list out some of ones I’ve enjoyed in the event you have not seen them. I started watching him on Lincoln Heights, so that is where I start! ~ Vida


Lincoln Heights (2008-2009) ~ Video via janae78stl

Eddie Sutton (Russell Hornsby) is a dedicated Southern California police officer who lives with his family in a suburban apartment complex. When the department offers him the chance to own the run-down crack house he just raided, Eddie jumps at it . However, wife Jenn (Nicki Micheaux) and teenage kids Cassie (Erica Hubbard), Tay (Mishon Ratliff) and Lizzie (Rhyon Nicole Brown) are less than thrilled. The area is filled with danger, but good neighbors welcome the family to the community.

Nathaniel “Nate” Ray Taylor (Chadwick Boseman) is Eddie’s son with former flame Dana Taylor. Nate was raised down in the south by neither Eddie nor Dana. He served in Iraq in the Army. Eddie did not know Nate was his son until the season three finale. His age and the age of his parents implies they were very young when he was born, considering Eddie was already a teenager when Cassie was born. Season 4, he lives with the Suttons and does not get along with Tay. Nate goes back to Iraq, but he’s seriously injured during the war. He suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Source
