An extraordinary talent that inspired a generation to feel like kings. He understood something special and noble about life and was determined to use his talents to make it meaningful. He could still give the world so much … – wrote the Russo brothers.

Chadwick came to the White House to work with kids when he was playing Jackie Robinson. You could tell right away that he was blessed. To be young, gifted, and Black; to use that power to give them heroes to look up to; to do it all while in pain – what a use of his years. https://t.co/KazXV1e7l7
