This is a proud moment for Boseman’s family and friends. The actor was a proud Howard alum and was the university’s commencement speaker in 2018.

Boseman shared, “Purpose is an essential element of you. It is the reason you are on the planet at this particular time in history.”

In a statement published via social media, Boseman’s family said: “Chad, you exemplify Howard’s core values of excellence, leadership, service, and truth. There is no one more deserving of such an honor.”
