Boseman’s wife, Simone Ledward Boseman, accepted the Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role for his performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom on his behalf.

“If you see the world unbalanced, be a crusader that pushes heavily on the seesaw of the mind. That’s a quote by Chadwick Boseman,” Simone said while virtually accepting the honor.
