Chadwick Boseman’s Timeless Message to Young Voters: “You Can Turn Our Nation Around”

Two months ago today, actor Chadwick Boseman died after a four-year private struggle with colon cancer.

In 2018, Boseman recorded a message for young people in the U.S., urging them to vote in that year’s mid-term elections.

Listening to this message, I can't help but think how true and vital it remains today, less than a week from the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Indeed, it’s a message that is relevant to each and every election; and one that can inspire all of us, no matter what age we are.

I share it this morning in honor of Chad.
