Chadwick Boseman Shares Excitement About Upcoming Commencement Speech

Wednesday on “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan” , Chadwick Boseman talked about his excitement to return back to Howard University this weekend to serve as the speaker for the 150th Commencement Ceremony.
“I think anytime I get on stage I feel that nervous energy…butterflies. But it’s an honor to go back and encourage that are doing great things and give people the hope and experience the nostalgia of being back there. I’m a little nervous, but I’m excited more than anything.”
Boseman recalls that during his graduation, actress Angela Bassett received an honorary doctorate. Recently she played his mother in the blockbuster film, “Black Panther,” which he considers a full-circle moment. He will receive the honorary Doctor of Humane Letters on Saturday.
“So think of who in the audience will be playing some role in your life after you give this commencement,” said Ryan Seacrest. “You’ll have to keep this alive.”
