Samuel L. Jackson has created a new challenge for celebs to follow, much like the ice bucket challenge, except this one is for human rights.

Jackson recently posted a video to his Facebook with a caption that read, “Seeking more singers!!” In the video (shown above) Jackson says, “All you celebrities out there who poured ice water on your head, here’s a chance to do something else. I challenge all of you to sing the ‘We ain’t gonna stop, till people are free’ song.” He then begins to sing:

“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.”

This is a brave call for Jackson, but it it not the first. Remember when Orlando Jones, another actor, made a both statement in the ice bucket challenge, using a bucket of bullets to represent the problem with racism?

Let’s sit back and watch who will support Samuel L. Jackson in this challenge. Will you?
