Best quotes from Chadwick Boseman's Howard University graduation speech

Image Text
 WISDOM Chadwick Boseman returned to his alma mater Howard University at the weekend

He used his Saturday speech to encourage students to be passionate in their pursuit of life and to also fight for equality and justice.

In addition to telling students that he too fought for problems during his tenure at Howard, which he called a "magical place", he said: "You love the university enough to struggle with it". After graduating from Howard, Boseman attended the British American Dramatic Academy at Oxford.

"Sometimes you need to feel the real pain and sting of defeat to activate the real passion and objective that God destined inside of you", he told the graduates. "Students, in some ways, what you were able to do exemplifies some of the skills you learned in the classroom", he continued.

He also commended them for succeeding in reaching their demands, "You received a majority of your demands, making a significant impact on those who came after you".

He said that the fact the students have struggled in the university means that they can use their education to improve the world they are going to enter.

Tesla SUV earns Guinness World Record by towing plane almost 1000 feet
Although it's rated to tow 2500kg, the Model X managed to pull the 130,000 kg airplane almost 300 meters. Avid motoring enthusiasts probably remember Volkswagen towing a Boeing 747 with a diesel V10 Touareg.

"The light of new realization shines on you today", Boseman said.

"Take the harder way, the more complicated one, the one with more failures at first than successes", he said. "Whatever you choose for a career path, remember the struggles along the way are only meant to shape you for your objective".

Howard University has recently seen a tough school year following the financial aid scandal revelation. "Purpose crosses disciplines. It is the reason that you are on the planet at this particular time in history".

During the commencement, Howard University awarded Boseman with the university's highest honor, an honorary doctorate degree, Doctor of Humane Letters. "Your very existence is wrapped up in the things you are here to fulfill".

As he wrapped his speech, Boseman did his now famous "Wakanda salute" saying, "Howard forever".
