Over this past weekend at the Disney Legends Award Ceremony at the D23 Expo, Chadwick Boseman was inducted as a Disney Legend. On behalf of the late great Boseman, his brother, Derrick Boseman, accepted the award on his late brother’s behalf and reflected on how much the late actor appreciated being a movie star.
Derrick Boseman stated: “When I heard that Disney wanted to honor Chad, the first word that came to mind for me was the word honor. As I think about my brother and this honor that is being bestowed upon him, I wish that he was here to receive it. Him not being here has been a point of immense pain for my whole family. But as I think about him, I think about how he honored our parents. How he honored his family. How he honored even his friends, and he made sure that his friends had good careers. How he honored all the contracts that he signed. He honored them with his blood, his sweat, his tears, as he played these roles and he was taking chemo at the same time.”
