I have to find my words. I’m so nervous. My heart won’t stop beating. The late Tony Morrison said that your life is already a miracle of chance waiting for you to determine its fate. But for this destiny to come true, I think it takes courage to have faith. It takes patience, as we just heard. And that requires true knowledge of yourself. It has not been easy because the past has been twists and turns and has many unexpected twists and turns, but by the grace of God I am standing here. I’m grateful here.
Angela Bassett didn’t forget to thank herboth to her husband Courtney B. Vance, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever film crew. What’s that director Ryan Cooglerfrom the boss of Marvel Studios Kevin Feigeproducer Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, or Louis D’Esposito … Above all, he endured a few words for Chadwick Bosemanwho died of colon cancer in 2020. People who played Black Panther until this last filmleft an indelible mark on his comrades in the saga team.

This gift belongs to all of you, belongs to all of us. Thank you.
