Howard U. Renames School of Fine Arts in Honor of Late Alum Chadwick Boseman

Howard University has renamed its College of Fine Arts in honor of the late actor and Howard alum Chadwick Boseman, who died last year at age 43 from colon cancer.

Boseman, revered as one of the university’s most accomplished alumni, starred in the 2018 blockbuster “Black Panther” as well as several other acclaimed films. He was posthumously nominated for an Oscar for his role last year in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Boseman graduated in 2000 from Howard with a bachelor’s degree in directing.

The renaming announced by the university this week will help jump-start a fundraiser to construct a new state-of-the-art Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts Building on the northwest D.C. campus.

The new building is slated to house the Cathy Hughes School of Communications, Howard’s TV station WHUT and its radio station WHUR-FM (96.3), The Washington Post reported.
