Fans saw Chadwick Boseman’s widow Taylor Simone Ledward accept a posthumous award on her husband’s wife.

The follow up of Black Panther is in limbo since the passing of Chadwick Boseman death after his battle with colon cancer. Taylor Simone Ledward, Boseman’s wife, has been silent until on Monday (January 11) to accept a Gotham Award on his behalf.

Boseman was honored with the Actor Tribute and Taylor accepted the award with an emotional speech. “As an artist, an actor, and a person, Chad made a practice of telling the truth,” Ledward stated. “He is the most honest person I’ve ever met. Because he didn’t just stop at speaking the truth, he actively searched for it—in himself, in those around him, and in the moment.”

“The truth can be a very easy thing for the self to avoid, but if one does not live in truth, then it’s impossible to live in line with a divine purpose for your life. And so, it became how he lived his life, day in, day out. Imperfect, but determined.” She added, “He developed his understanding of what it meant to be the one, the none and the all. He realized when one is able to recognize that their strength does not come from themself, they rarely mess up.”
