“I wish we had more time,” Jordan wrote in his post, which included several photos of the two together.
“Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me,” Jordan wrote. “You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.”
“Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity,” Jordan wrote. “You cared about me.”
He said he will dedicate the rest of his life to live the way Boseman did, “with grace, courage, and no regrets.”
Jordan ended his tribute with the famous line from Erik Killmonger, the villain whom he portrayed in “Black Panther.”
