While sitting down for an interview with The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg, Simone Ledward Boseman reflected on the inspiring life of her husband, Chadwick Boseman. Simone, still grieving the loss of her husband two years after he died from colon cancer at age 43, reminisced about the first moment she met the Black Panther actor. 

The couple met shortly after Chadwick played James Brown in the 2014 biographical drama Get On Up. Chadwick attended a James Brown tribute concert at the Hollywood Bowl after starring in the movie, where Simone was also working.
