“We started talking about another project that I had hoped we were going to work on,” Jackson mentioned. “And he was like, ‘I’m sorry y’all, I’m not going to be there but I wish we were going to work together … we had planned it for a while.”
Jackson went on to clarify how Boseman’s life resonated outdoors the movies he starred in.
“He imprinted society in such a way,” Jackson mentioned, “[He] impacted especially the Black culture and giving kids a hero that they could aspire to.”
After Boseman’s dying, social media was flooded with posts of youngsters paying tribute to the superhero.
“To lose him, I don’t even know if I would have been able to tell my kid that,” Jackson mentioned. “I might have waited until they were older so that they could process it better.”
