The organization’s Instagram page, stated that “Chadwick Boseman was our African- American Hero, on and off the screen. He was benevolent, selfless, and overall an amazing individual with the kindest heart.”

TEDxDelState U found a safe and creative way to honor Chadwick Boseman’s legacy and keep Delaware State students engaged through devastating times. 

The newly created organization was influenced by the TED Foundation. TEDxDelState U states “Our ultimate goal for TEDxDelState is to supply student outreach at Delaware State, by helping others express their creativity and spread knowledge to anyone with a listening ear, on and off-campus.”
