In recent times, people have started to look to celebrities to take a stand on a variety of social issues—especially those that deal with race and police brutality. And while some stars choose to remain mum or oblivious to the almost daily occurrences of such social injustices, others choose to share their opinions on race relations. Some are even devising solutions to help people of color combat White supremacy.
Actor Jesse Williams, for instance, has been advocating against police brutality and shedding more light on how certain American laws and a variety of police departments across the country never intended to serve or protect the Black community. Following in Williams’s footsteps are 20 celebrities who are using their platforms to educate their followers and peers in the entertainment and sports industries.
