Wednesday watch: Jesse Williams at the BET Awards

If you’re like me, your social media feeds were full of people sharing actor and activist Jesse Williams’ acceptance speech at the BET Awards, and with good reason. His speech is a searing indictment of racism and police brutality and has some blunt words for critics of the Black Lives Matter movement. If you haven’t taken a few minutes to watch yet, it’s well worth your time.
