Chadwick Boseman Drove Past KKK Rallies While Filming Black Panther
Chadwick Boseman is Hollywood's hottest actor right now, thanks to his role as T'Challa in Black Panther, which is a milestone movie for the black community. Chadwick put it in perspective when describing driving past KKK rallies during filming.
“When I was shooting Black Panther in Atlanta, I used to drive back on off-days to go see my family in Anderson (South Carolina). It’s about two hours,” he told Mr. Porter.
“And I would see the Klan holding rallies in a Walmart car park,” he added. “So it’s like we’re going forwards and backwards at the same time. People don’t want to experience change, they just want to wake up and it’s different. But this — shooting Black Panther and then driving past the Klan —that’s what change feels like.”
