As Nov. 29 marks what would have been Chadwick Boseman’s 44th birthday, fans continue to mourn his devastating death in August after a secret four-year battle with colon cancer.
His career and life were tragically cut short, the actor’s iconic on-screen body of work and his incredible deeds off-screen will undoubtedly be remembered forever.
Boseman was raised in Anderson, South Carolina, and attended college at Howard University in Washington, D.C. before attending New York City’s Digital Film Academy.
The talented actor received assistance from famous mentors along the way, including The Cosby Show star Phylicia Rashad — who was one of his teachers at Howard — and Denzel Washington, who paid for Boseman and a few of his Howard classmates to attend the Oxford Mid-Summer Program of the British American Drama Academy in England, to which they had been accepted.
Before his death, Chadwick starred opposite Viola Davis in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’.
