Chadwick Boseman's brother recalls his last conversation with late actor: ‘The next day he passed away'


Chadwick Boseman’s brother shared details from the last conversation he had with the late actor.

In an interview with the New York Times, published after the actor’s death, Kevin and Pastor Derrick Boseman spoke about their beloved brother, whom they called Chad.

The star, best known for his role in “Black Panther,” died of colon cancer on August 28 at age 43.

“I have been trying to remember Chad and not Chadwick. And there’s just been a lot of Chadwick in the air,” Kevin said.

His brother Kevin, a dancer, actor, and writer, also remembered when his brother started to make a big name for himself. “You have to start sharing that person with the world; I always endeavored to just treat him like my brother,” he said.

Pastor Boseman shared that his younger brother was gifted and could sit and draw anyone when he was a child. “He’s probably the most gifted person I’ve ever met,” he added.

"He always did his best. His best was incredible," Boseman added.

Pastor Boseman shared details from the last conversation he had with his brother when the family had prayer calls.

“No matter what he was going through, he always said, ‘Hallelujah.’ He never stopped saying it,” he said. “When he told me that, I changed my prayer from, ‘God heal him, God save him,’ to ‘God, let your will be done,’” Pastor Boseman said. “And the next day he passed away.”

In September, Boseman was buried near his hometown in South Carolina just six days following his death from a four-year-long cancer battle.

The LA County Certificate indicated Boseman’s hometown of Anderson, 11 miles away from his burial site. The town hosted a large public memorial in honor of the actor’s life.

An announcement on his social media accounts said, “He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.”
