Selena Gomez recently gave control of her Instagram to Run The Jewel‘s Killer Mike in order to teach about the work of black activists and the history of racism.
“Right now, a lot of people are asking what they can do,” Mike said in the first of a series of posts on Selena’s Instagram Stories. “How they can make a difference. I always say start local. Support local candidates and support grassroots groups in your community.”
In another post, he reminded his people of Atlanta to vote. Mike added, “I appreciate protest and demonstrations. Beyond that, one of the most important things you can do to improve your community is to plot, plan, strategize, organize and mobilize.”
Selena had earlier allowed Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza, New Yorker writer and Columbia University professor Jelani Cobb and Harvard University African & African American Studies professor Sarah Elizabeth Lewis to use her Instagram as platform to educate and increase awareness about racism.
