Chadwick Boseman Day, observed on November 29, is held on the late star’s birthday and is a day for us to remember the actor who sadly left us too soon. Boseman was perhaps most famous for playing Black Panther in the Marvel franchise, but also played James Brown in “Get On Up” as well as featuring prominently in “21 Bridges” and “42”. Known for his welcoming, humble personality and down to earth nature, Boseman died on August 28, 2020, as a result of complications due to colon cancer. He was 43. On Chadwick Boseman Day we remember his talents, but also the wonderful person that he was.

HISTORY OF CHADWICK BOSEMAN DAY


Chadwick Aron Boseman was born in Anderson, South Carolina on November 29, 1976, and was the son of Leroy and Carolyn Boseman. As a child, he was a basketball enthusiast and played for the school team before graduating from T. L. Hanna High School in 1995. Boseman wrote his first play in his junior year. “Crossroads” was in memory of a classmate who was shot and killed and was staged at the school.
Boseman studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts in directing at Howard University and graduated in 2000. During this period Boseman committed most of his efforts to becoming a writer and director. He moved to New York City and graduated from the city’s Digital Film Academy before moving to LA in 2008 to pursue an acting career.
Having picked up numerous small roles, his big breakthrough came in 2013 when he played Baseball star Jackie Robinson in the film “42”. In 2014 he played James Brown in “Get On Up” as well as starring in Draft Day alongside Kevin Costner, with his character being an NFL draft prospect.
The Marvel President had noticed Boseman playing James Brown and by 2016 he was making his first appearance as Black Panther in “Captain America: Civil War.” In 2018 “Black Panther” was released to critical acclaim and was one of the best performing movies of the year.
In 2019 Boseman got engaged to Taylor Simone Ledward with the two reportedly getting married in secret not long before his death. Boseman had been diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016 but kept the diagnosis a secret. His condition worsened and Boseman died at his home on August 28, 2020. His death was greeted with shock and sadness across the world, with a huge outpouring of grief, respect, and fond memories all being shared online.
