Chadwick Boseman's 'Black Panther' Movie Mom Angela Bassett Shares Touching Tribute, Reveals How They First Met

Angela Bassett played Chadwick Boseman‘s mom in the iconic Marvel movie Black Panther and she wrote a touching tribute for the late actor after his tragic death.

Chadwick died on Friday (August 28) after losing his four-year battle to colon cancer, which he was fighting when he made Black Panther.

In a tribute posted to Instagram, Angela revealed that she first met Chadwick when he was a student at Howard University and she was there to receive an honorary degree.

“It was meant to be for Chadwick and me to be connected, for us to be family. But what many don’t know is our story began long before his historic turn as Black Panther. During the premiere party for Black Panther, Chadwick reminded me of something. He whispered that when I received my honorary degree from Howard University, his alma mater, he was the student assigned to escort me that day. And here we were, years later as friends and colleagues, enjoying the most glorious night ever!” Angela said.

She continued, “We’d spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son. I am honored that we enjoyed that full circle experience. This young man’s dedication was awe-inspiring, his smile contagious, his talent unreal. So I pay tribute to a beautiful spirit, a consummate artist, a soulful brother… ‘thou aren’t not dead but flown afar…’ All you possessed, Chadwick, you freely gave. Rest now, sweet prince.”

Read what over a dozen other stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are saying in their tributes for Chadwick.

Angela Bassett, Alicia Garza, Joe Morton, Phylicia Rashad, Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, Courtney B. Vance, Pauletta Washington and Susan Kelechi Watson are also set to star in HBO’s adaptation of the stage show, which is based on Ta-Nehisi CoatesNew York Times bestseller.

Here’s more about the production: “Originally adapted and staged by the Apollo Theater in 2018, the special will combine elements of that production, including readings from Coates’ book, and will once again be directed by award-winning director and Apollo Theater Executive Producer Kamilah Forbes. It will also incorporate documentary footage from the actors’ home life, archival footage, and animation.”

“The book, which was first published in 2015 by One World, is written as a letter to Coates’ teenage son and recounts the author’s experiences growing up in Baltimore’s inner city and his growing fear of daily violence against the Black community. The narrative explores Coates’ notion that American society structurally supports white supremacy.”

The special is currently in production under COVID-19 guidelines, and will debut this fall on HBO and HBO Max.

Oprah recently made headlines for buying dozens of billboards for a reason.
