Jay Z made an appearance at the Sundance Film Festival to premiere his upcoming six-part miniseries “TIME: The Kalief Browder Story”.
Kalief Browder was the young man who committed suicide after spending three years at Rikers Island after never being convicted of a crime. It’s such a heart-breaking story but it’s definitely a story that needs to be told.
During a Q&A at the screening, Jay Z even touched on the Women’s March and the change that we can make together.
“We have to organize. I’ve been in these meetings, I’ve spoken with people, I’ve done many things behind the scenes, but most important: We are the power. I’m sure a lot of you guys participated in it, but that display of woman power the other day was so amazing and we saw the effect: That no matter what, no matter who’s in office, we are the people that’s in power.”
