‘The Harder They Fall’: Chadwick Boseman Featured In Tribute

The Black western film is now streaming on Netflix.

Netflix’s The Harder They Fall roped in some of Black Hollywood’s most elite after it premiered on the the streaming platform on Wednesday (Nov. 3) after having a short theatrical debut in October.

The Black western film starring Idris Elba, Regina King, Jonathan Majors, LaKeith Stanfield, Zazie Beetz and more, also featured a touching tribute to late actor, Chadwick Boseman.

In one scene, while Elba’s character is being transported on a train and as it becomes clearer into view, with Stanfield and King’s characters walking past it, the name of the train is a subtle honor to Boseman.

Labeled the “C.A. Boseman,” it is clear that the tribute is to the actor whose full name is Chadwick Aaron Boseman.

After a four-year private battle with colon cancer, Chadwick Boseman died in August 2020. He posthumously received awards for his role in Netflix’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom in 2021 and reprised his role postmortem as T’Challa from Black Panther in four episodes of Marvel’s What If…?.

In October of this year, Netflix partnered with Howard University, to establish a $5.4 million scholarship in his name, previously reported.

The Chadwick Boseman Memorial Scholarship will cover the full cost of university tuition for incoming four-year College of Fine Arts students.
