Chadwick Boseman forever will be a legend. Two years back, this industry lost a gem of a person. Everyone was in grief and all shattered by this news.

But even though he is not among us anymore, his legacy will forever live. Last month, Disney+ announced to honor Chadwick Boseman’s legacy with the Disney Legends award at the D23 special event. As D23 has already begun, yesterday Late Chadwick was honored with this award.

His brother Derrick Boseman, got up on stage to accept Chadwick’s award. He gave a very heartfelt speech after the acceptance of the award. Derrick speaks, ” When I heard that Disney wanted to honor Chad, the first word that came to mind for me was the word honor.”

Further, he adds, ” As I think about my brother and this honor that is being bestowed upon him, I wish he was here to receive it.” He says that Chadwick not being here with us is ‘a point of immense pain’ for his family. As he continues his speech, he mentions how Chadwick honored his parents, family, friends, contracts that he signed, and made sure his friends had a good career.

The Black Panther actor’s brother says, ” He honored them with his blood, his sweat, his tears, as he played these roles and he was taking chemo at the same time.”

He concludes his speech by saying, ” Chad, We’ll always love you. And Mom and dad will always love you.” Further, he adds, ” To me, Mom and Daddy are also legends because it takes a king and a queen to create a king.”
