As a part of our commitment and responsibilities as an ally, we intend to highlight and amplify black voices within our community. Each week, we’ll be introducing you to a new guest who will be diving into important topics about the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We hope that you will find this series educational and empowering. This week, we linked up with Washington Wizards star John Wall to discuss his work with the Black community in our nation’s capital and all the significant work that he has done with the JW Family Foundation to impact the youth in the city.
