QuizzClub’s Community has chosen 7 exclusive and interesting facts about Boseman that you’d never heard before. Moreover, there are social media posts from people paying tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman. His impact lives forever.
Fact 1: Boseman attended Howard University a.k.a. “The Mecca”, at the same time as author Ta-Nehisi Coates, who also became a writer for the Black Panther comics
Boseman credits the historically black college for introducing him to more black history and writers such as James Baldwin.
Fact 2: It’s easy to forget but even the most impressive people can have humble origins
Chadwick Boseman was born in South Carolina in 1977, growing up in the city of Anderson. Not exactly where you’d expect a star of his stature to come from.
Fact 3: After getting the role of T’Challa in the film “Black Panther”, Boseman wanted to get in touch with his African roots.
Africancestry.com traced his lineage to the specific ethnic groups of his ancestry homes.
Fact 4: Most of us live our entire lives using the name we got at birth. And sure, there is something nice and familiar about it… but don’t we all secretly want a name full of power and meaning?
While doing research for “Black Panther” in Cape Town, a street musician gave Boseman the Xhosa name which means “Peacemaker”.
Fact 5: Prior to his filmmaking or writing ambitions, Boseman loved to draw and was interested in becoming an architect.
And we are sure he could have become a great architect too and besides that, unfortunately, there were too many things left undone.
Fact 6: Boseman initially got into acting only so that he could become a better director.
He wanted to better understand what the actors were doing so that his advice would be more useful.
Fact 7: Boseman literally struggled to breathe after being cast as the Black Panther, since the suit used in “Captain America: Civil War” was too tight.
Boseman felt more comfortable with the suit used in “Black Panther” but still it took a while to get to a real level of comfort. He had been hiding his cancer for more than 4 years meanwhile working with directors and acting in some very hard scenes.
