Rather than share her words in written form, the "Black Panther" star expressed her thoughts verbally in a beautifully produced short video shared to her Instagram.
There have been many touching and powerful tributes in the wake of Chadwick Boseman's death after a private four-year battle with colon cancer. Now comes a stunningly artistic expression of Letitia Williams' grief via spoken word poetry.
The "Black Panther" star, who played Boseman's younger sister in the blockbuster film, first put pen to paper and then voice to mic as she honored the man who went from an on-screen brother to her "brother" in life, as well.
"This hurts," she said at one point as beautiful images from nature interspersed with short vignettes of the co-stars together and a melancholy piano accompaniment. It was an echo of her tweet shortly after the shocking news of his death went public.

Boseman had kept his battle with cancer private and secret from even some of those closest to him, including his co-stars and directors.
The whole production was stunningly edited by Wright herself and it is absolutely gut-wrenching and raw. She spoke of the day she discovered, along with the rest of the world, that he was gone.
She opened up about the realization of what he'd been dealing with all these years and then reminisced on their first meeting, times spent together on the set of "Black Panther" and what happens next.
