Selena Gomez brought so much to the BLM movement through empowering leaders to share their truth and share their cause. Kendrick Sampson was the next in line to share his voice on the platform.
Sampson founded BLD PWR, which engages culture, education, and activism. The organization is dedicated to fostering inclusivity within athletics and within the acting scene. As an actor, Sampson has also placed himself in a prime position to be an advocate.
Sampson focused his takeover, though, on mental health within the Black community. I'll be the first one to stand up and say that I have no idea what it's like to be Black and have no idea how it impacts your mental health constantly living in a society that is thriving on pushing you down based on your skin color. I can only imagine how terrible that is, and I can only listen to my Black and brown friends and hear their experiences and exhaustion.
He imagines a world where everyone is provided with the care needed to thrive not only in the public sector but with their own mental health battle as well.
Mental health resources should always be readily available to everyone, and the resources available to people should match their needs and their mental health struggles. Period.
