Chadwick Boseman
Posted By: Will Moss on March 12, 2018

Check out this quick video about the star of the blockbuster film "Black Panther" starring HBCU Grad (Howard University) Chadwick Boseman!

Chadwick graduated from Howard University in 2000!

Boseman was born and raised in Anderson, South Carolina, the son of Carolyn and Leroy Boseman, both African Americans. His mother was a nurse and his father worked at a textile factory, keeping an upholstery business as well. Boseman graduated from T. L. Hanna High School in 1995. In his junior year, he wrote his first play, Crossroads, and staged it at the school after a classmate was shot and ****. He studied at Howard University in Washington, DC, 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 attend the Oxford Mid-Summer Program of the British American Drama Academy in London, to which they'd been accepted.

Boseman wanted to write and direct, and initially began studying acting to learn how to relate to actors. After he returned to the US, he graduated from New York City's Digital Film Academy. He lived in Brooklyn at the start of his career. Boseman worked as the drama instructor in the Schomburg Junior Scholars Program, housed at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, New York. In 2008 he moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
