Help Me Reach 25,000 Signatures!

Hi everyone!

Thank you all so much for your signatures, comments, and support the past few days. Please continue to keep Chadwick's wife, family, and friends in your thoughts and prayers. With your help, we've been able to get over 19,000 signatures- and the numbers are still increasing! Please continue to share the petition via email, social media, and other forms of communication as we work to reach our next goal of 25,000 signatures. Your support means a great deal to me and the other students in the Division of Fine Arts. 

I did want to clarify something that I've received a few questions about. The goal of this petition is to name the soon-to-be reestablished College of Fine Arts in Chadwick Boseman's honor, NOT to change the name of the current Fine Arts building (Lulu Vere Childers Hall). Childers Hall is a wonderful namesake and tribute, and should remain that way. The ideal end result is the Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts, which would be housed in Lulu Vere Childers Hall.

I also wanted to give a special thank you to the Karen Hunter Show on Sirius XM's Urban View and to Anna-Lysa Gale with DC's ABC7 for providing me with the platform to talk about the petition and Chadwick's impact at Howard. 

Thanks again, and keep sharing!
