Chadwick Boseman's widow pays emotional tribute during Gotham Awards

Simone Ledward Boseman, Chadwick Boseman's wife and widow, publicly spoke out for the first time since the actor's death at the 30th annual IFP Gotham Awards on January 11. Simone continued that Chadwick lives his life beautifully, and he was determined to be the best, as a man, as a person, as an actor.

"He actively searched for it in himself and those around him", Ledward said.

Boseman died in August at the age of 43 after a four year struggle with colon cancer.

Accepting the actor tribute to Boseman, his wife, Simone Ledward Boseman, described him as "the most honest person I've ever met". "Keep shining your light on us", she added.

She also seemed to touch on the diversity of the characters he'd played and what that brought to his life.

Thanks to his touching performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, available for streaming on Netflix, the late Chadwick Boseman was honored with a posthumous Gotham Award.

"I want to thank all the other nominees for their work and inspiration, in particular Chadwick Boseman", Ahmed said during the show.

The British actor said his fellow nominee had been "truly inspiring" and had set "an example for all of us" with his "humanity and dignity".
