Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams is anything but “just an actor.” Some people have called Williams the next Harry Belafonte. Williams’ activism goes beyond the keyboard, and he practices what he preaches offline through his work with the Advancement Project, an organization focused on civil rights. 

On Wednesday evening, as Williams was still trying to make sense of what happened to Sandra Bland during and after that traffic stop in Texas, he tweeted about the unfairness of the justice system, especially in terms of race.


If only Bland knew how many people were looking for answers surrounding her death.
