"Black Panther" actor Michael B. Jordan was one of those who decided to take it to the streets and protest against racial injustice and police brutality in America. To further advance the cause, he made a speech during the demonstration to speak about the importance of social justice.

While working on numerous projects in Hollywood, Jordan learned something from each of them when it comes to race. He specifically touched on "Black Panther," "Fahrenheit 451," "Fruitvale Station," and "Just Mercy."

STANDING TOGETHER FOR JUSTICE

The last movie, however, taught him the most, as it was on social justice activist and lawyer, Bryan Stevenson. While working on the movie, he understood what Stevenson's approach was to things, and he was trying to emulate it.

"You have to be proximal. You have to be close to [the] issues. We have to be close to the issues. That is why I love everyone out here because we have to be here together. Shoulder to shoulder."

According to Jordan, he now uses his own power to demand diversity, especially in Hollywood studios and agencies. He adds that while Hollywood committed to gender parity, there is still a need to commit to Black hiring as they are through with discrimination.

Jordan joins the growing list of Hollywood figures to take it to the streets, demanding justice and an end to racial injustice and police brutality. The likes of Evan Ross, Jamie Foxx, Stephen Curry, and Nick Cannon have done the same, and many more continue to join in.
