Black actor and Morehouse man, Samuel L. Jackson, is not a one to shy away from controversy. Despite the rest of Hollywood, especially Black Hollywood, remaining silent on the recent protests against police violence, Jackson has issued a challenge. “All you celebrities that poured ice water on your heads, here’s a chance to do something else. I challenge all of you to sing the ‘We ain’t gonna stop, till people are free’ song,” he said.
