Actor And Activist, Playing Actor Activist…Brilliant!
Jesse Williams, many of you know him as Jackson Avery on the hit show “Greys Anatomy”, is more than just an actor. An avid political, and social activist, what he tweets and raves about in videos doesn’t compare to his work in leadership. What many don’t know about Jesse is that he is an Afrikan American Studies expert having a degree from Temple University, and having been a teacher for six years. This actor/activist re-tweeted and confirmed the once rumor that he’d be starring and producing Harry Belafonte’s Biopic, but Jesse is so much more than that.
Jesse Williams has marched for justice for the Afrikan American community, BLACK LIVES MATTER, and is said to be the youngest board member on the civil rights group, which also features Harry Belafonte, The Advancement Project;
“Advancement Project is a next generation, multi-racial civil rights organization. Rooted in the great human rights struggles for equality and justice, we exist to fulfill America’s promise of a caring, inclusive and just democracy. We use innovative tools and strategies to strengthen social movements and achieve high impact policy change.”
Considering the above, Jesse producing this film about Harry Belafonte, and starring has Harry is so perfect, it’s almost like it is destiny. Amidst the controversial Nina Simone biopic, and the biopics that have been televised lately, the masses are finally happy with this particular biopic as it makes sense, it fits, and considering Jesse and Harry, you know its going to be of high quality. ..
‘I care more about activism and social justice and law than I do about acting. I have an awesome job that I love, but there’s this magnetic force that is constantly pulling me toward activism. I just have to do it,’ Williams said on the Denzel Washington Is The Greatest Podcast
