Jay-Z's Team Roc Takes Out Full-Page Newspaper Ads in Support of George Floyd Protests

Team Roc, the philanthropic arm of Jay-Z's Roc Nation, has taken out full-page ads in multiple newspapers across the U.S. in support of protesters.

The letter is dedicated to George Floyd, who was killed at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department, and includes a passage from a speech Martin Luther King Jr. gave in Selma in 1965. Publication of the letter marks a partnership with multiple families who've lost children to police brutality, as well as activists and attorneys.

Angela Rye, Michael Eric Dyson, Antwon Rose's mother Michelle Kenney, DJ Henry's parents Danroy and Angella Henry, Charlamagne Tha God, George Floyd's family attorneys Ben Crump and S. Lee Merritt, the Botham Jean Foundation, and more have contributed their signatures to the letter.

The letter appears in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, and elsewhere. See it in full below.
