It’s only right I start this off with a quote from the man himself. “Somebody has to stand when other people are sitting. Somebody has to speak when other people are quiet.” Thank you to BET for not only recognizing me but this necessary film. Bryan Stevenson I’ve said this time and time again, but you’re a real super hero and I’m honored to have been given an opportunity to portray you. May we continue to tell stories that uplift and push our culture forward. Also let’s keep standing, marching, fighting, speaking and shining! ✊🏾✊🏾

With all the negativity going on in the world I want to take a second to uplift my best friend and if this past year has taught us anything it’s that we can’t take life for granted! Happy birthday @steelobrim love you bro!
Many people see this logo and think it’s a cop, but it’s really a black man. This logo by Chuck D represents the target on black folks backs. If you saw the logo differently, think differently: This country was built on the backs of our ancestors — backs that had a target the entire time and this month is no different with more black lives caught in the crosshairs. Too many look at us as public enemies, only some see us as humans, and yet we need to be superhuman just to survive. We must strategize, organize, and train ourselves as we demand more. One arrest isn’t enough. This is just the beginning.
Jordan vs. Malone ... y’all saw how that ended 😏 @postmalone
Mom, Mecca, Queen. Thank you for all you have ever done for us and all you continue to do. Jamila, not only is this your first Mother’s Day, but this one will always stand out because y’all survived being locked in the house with a new born and family for 2 months straight if that’s not strength I don’t know what is 😂😂 Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. We celebrate you everyday!!!💐💖💐
I’m sick to my stomach and could barely watch the video. Another one of our future kings and leaders was murdered!!! To the family and friends of Ahmaud my thoughts and prayers are with you. Just because you may not experience racism, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist and if you don’t think anything is wrong with this video or try to defend this in anyway, you are a part of the problem. #thiscouldhavebeenmeoryou
Restaurant and healthcare workers need our help right now. For the rest of this month I will support by donating daily catered meals to frontline staff workers and healthcare heroes in Newark. Today I joined @marcuscooks and @chefjoseandres @WCKitchen in launch of the #newarkworkingkitchens . I grew up with a firsthand view of the food economy in Newark because my dad worked at a food bank and my family had a small catering business. I see how this crisis has deeply challenged my hometown. And so, I’m proud that this partnership not only sustains restaurants through catering orders for people in need, but it also feeds workers going out everyday in spite of this crisis. This will be a long recovery for Newark's black residents in particular, so thank you to @Audible for your $1 million / 100,000 meal commitment and also to all Newark businesses, restaurants and nonprofits involved. #chefsforamerica
