Jay-Z buys full-page ads dedicated to George Floyd in multiple newspapers

Jay-Z’s Team ROC has taken out a full-page ad dedicated to George Floyd that will be appearing in multiple major newspapers across the country.

Captioned “in dedication to George Floyd,” the bulk of the ad is text from a speech made by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma, Ala., in 1965. “Deep down in our nonviolent creed is the conviction — that there are some things so dear, something so precious, some things so eternally true, that they’re worth dying for,” the quote reads, in part.

“We’re going to stand amid anything they can muster up, letting the world know that we are determined to be free,” it concludes.
