Jesse Williams Has Bet it All On Black — Medium


Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams won the annual 2016 BET Humanitarian Award.

After accepting the award, the speech he gave validated his earning such recognition.

That speech was more talked about than the red carpet fashions — and it should have been too.

Jesse could have accepted his award and gave the standard thank you speech and returned to the lofty perch of acting and entertaining as all the other award winners did.

He didn’t do that.

He saw a platform that presented an opportunity to call out some very serious issues plaguing Blacks in this country.

He seized the opportunity and used it for all it was worth.

The 34-year old actor and activist began his politically and race charged call to action by shining the light of moment on those that are fighting for change and those living under the black clouds of injustice and systemic oppression in this country.

Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
