Chadwick Boseman has inherited an estate valued at nearly $4.5 million from his mother, according to USA Today. The 46-year-old actor, best known for his role as the titular superhero, will inherit 4,836 acres, including 13 structures, in Dekalb County, Georgia. Last month, property records indicate that the estate is located in the modest town of Batataan, located in the drought-stricken northeast corner of the
state. As of 2012, the year before Boseman’s mother died, her estate valued it at just under $3.3 million. Boseman was deeply impacted by his mother’s death, as she fought addiction for years. “There was one particular summer when I didn’t see her,” he recalled in a 2017 interview with People. “There was a point where I felt like she had passed, but I was trying to hold her. That’s something that stayed with me.” At
one point, Boseman contemplated joining the hip-hop collective Rhymefest’s Music for the People when his father encouraged him to focus on academics. “He said, ‘Listen.’ He’s like, ‘You made a name for yourself,’” he recalled. “I said, ‘Oh, I’m sorry. I can’t give up.’” Since then, Boseman has focused on studying law. He graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s degree in political science in 2000,
and in 2000 began studying at Juilliard School in New York City. In 2015, after working as an actor in New York City and Los Angeles, Boseman became the star of the hit feature film Marvel’s Black Panther, in which he played the Wakandan Prince T’Challa, a character older than he is. In August, Boseman star’s a big role in the Major League film franchise’s 2019 reboot, which sees a young Kevin Costner take the reins
of the Detroit White Sox franchise.
