Just in time for the New York primary, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders has released a new ad produced by Spike Lee.

The ad, titled¬†‚ÄúThese Are Mothers and Fathers, Sons and Daughters,‚ÄĚ features Harry Belafonte, Shaun King and Erica Garner talking about why they‚Äôre supporting Sanders this election.

‚ÄúPeople of color have a deeply vested interest in what Bernie Sanders brings to us in this election,‚ÄĚ Belafonte says.

‚ÄúPeople like Michael Brown, Sandra Bland and my father, Eric Garner,‚ÄĚ Eric Garner‚Äôs daughter Erica says.

‚ÄúThey‚Äôre not just hashtags and trending topics,‚ÄĚ King states. ‚ÄúThese are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters.‚ÄĚ

It’s quite apropos that Lee is behind the ad; after all, not only is he a staunch Sanders supporter, but both are from Brooklyn, N.Y.
