“Actions speak louder than words. I want to lead by example," Jordan told ESSENCE. "I know I had an opportunity with the shows and projects I had coming up, to put it to work. It's important to have diversity both in front of and behind the camera, and inclusion riders make sure that anyone who does business with my company knows that we expect there to be people of color, women, LGBT folks, and people with disabilities in key positions on our crews and productions staffs." ~ @michaelbjordan Source @theyoungempire_#theblackmancan#king#actor#creative
The @100blackmen@100blackmenofcva means more to me than any other organization in the world. To see the young men today who aren’t apart of a Royal Bloodline, but are still Kings and Queens made my heart warm. We are often told that we (Black Men) are messed up, delinquents, destined for prison, won’t take care of our children, don’t like school, can’t behave, or something else negative...
Today, and every other day we work to defy all stereotypes. Everyday we see young men like the ones in this picture prove the world wrong. Every May I’m reminded that the future is bright. This is my why.. Shoutout to my big bro @iamballhawk for sharing his story today and pushing the kings to be great! #MentoringMATTERS#Each1Teach1#MentoringThe100Way#NewCville
I’m forever indebted to God. Three and a half years ago God sent me an angel that was perfect in her own form. Gracious in her own style. Passionate in her own mind. Pure and loving in her own heart. I have forever been changed since the day we decided to embark on our journey of life together. Building every brick, laying all foundation, canvassing strokes of laughter, love, and good memories. Our love continues to as we now await to join each other hand in hand to share an eternity of love graced by God’s protection and blessings. My queen, I can’t wait to embark on this new chapter in our lives together and look back 75 years from now talk about Drake’s crazy run in hip hop, your love for Cardi B, and how I told you the Houston Rockets would win a NBA championship over the Celtics in 2018!
