A few weeks ago, Samuel L. Jackson posted a video to his Facebook with a caption that read, “Seeking more singers!!” He challenged celebrities who took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to step up and speak out against the hate and racism that has been so apparent in the last few months regarding Ferguson and police brutality as a whole. Jackson’s video followed the many protests that stemmed from the recent cases of Michael BrownEric Garner and Tamir Rice, who were shot dead by police.

In the video, Jackson sings:

“I can hear my neighbor cryin’ ‘I can’t breathe’
Now I’m in the struggle and I can’t leave.
Callin’ out the violence of the racist police.
We ain’t gonna stop, till people are free.
We ain’t gonna stop, till people are free.”
