Yesterday (June 2nd) Jay Z And Team Roc took out a full page newpaper ads expressing their support for George Floyd. The ad features a long quote from the speech Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered during a sermon in Selma, Alabama on March 8th, 1965.
The quote read, “A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.”
The “letter” is signed by a number of celebs, activists and thought leaders including Michael Eric Dyson Van Jones, Charlamagne tha God, Angela Rye and activists from organizations like The Innocence Project and Until Freedom.
