He was recognized for his portrayals of real-life historical figures, such as Jackie Robinson in 42 (2013), James Brown in Get on Up (2014), and Thurgood Marshall in Marshall (2017); and for his portrayal of the superhero Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, most notably in Black Panther (2018), for which he won a NAACP Image Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award, Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
His other film roles included 21 Bridges (2019) and Da 5 Bloods (2020). Boseman died at age 43, four years after being diagnosed with colon cancer.
Boseman attended college at Howard University in Washington, D.C., graduating in 2000 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in directing.
One of his teachers was Phylicia Rashad, who became a mentor.
She helped raise funds so that Boseman and some classmates could join the Oxford Mid-Summer Program of the British American Drama Academy in London, to which they had been accepted.
Boseman was detected with stage III colon cancer in 2016, which finally progressed to a stage IV before 2020. Boseman had not said publicly about his cancer diagnosis. During treatment (multiple surgeries and chemotherapy), he sustained to work and completed filming for several films, including Marshall, Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and others.
Boseman died at home of problems related to colon cancer on August 28, 2020, with his wife and family by his side. An official statement on his social media accounts read:
“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman. Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV. A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther. He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side. The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
