Grey’s Anatomy star Jessie William’s without a doubt stole the show Sunday night with an insanely inspirational speech as he accepted his BET Humanitarian Award.

Very well said!

William’s understands what it means to use your platform to bring about awareness and support within our own community. In October 2014, he joined  all the protests in Ferguson, Missouri in support of Michael Brown. He was also an actor and executive producer of Stay Woke, a documentary about the movement that premiered in May. He has written extensively on Black Lives Matter and met with President Obama earlier this year to discuss his humanitarian work.
