The current climate of America is causing some deep reflection among us all as the rate of unarmed black men being killed by police continues to escalate. Now, as the experiences get closer and closer to home, the world’s biggest celebrities are using their voice to speak out against police murders that have us all fearing, “Am I next?”

Yesterday, tennis champion Serena Williams experienced her “What if?” moment during a car ride with her nephew where his life went flashing before her eyes just like loved ones of the victims whom they watched die right before their own.

Serena opened up to Facebook with her emotional reflection and how the recent events have truly hit home for her.

It’s now an echoing sentiment that being silent is no longer an option. Silence only affirms the oppression to continue while taking action and standing together will weaken its strong hold until it is broke loose. Only then will freedom ring for Black America bringing forth that new America that is hoped for.
