Chadwick Boseman's alma mater has officially renamed a building after him.

Howard University placed the late actor's name over its fine arts building, a year after he died of colon cancer at age 43.

The historically Black university released a statement and posted a time lapse video of the letters going up on the building. "The letters were installed over the now official Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts," the university tweeted. "An icon in his own right who has left an immeasurable legacy for the next generation."
