Equality: Behind The Scenes

Nikes Dunks Hard the Equality Message

“Equality” features appearances from athletes LeBron James, Serena Williams, Kevin Durant, Megan Rapinoe, Dalilah Muhammad, Gabby Douglas and Victor Cruzset. It also includes voiceover and an appearance by actor Michael B. Jordan, who we’ll always remember as 16-year-old drug dealer Wallace on The Wire. Jordan appeared in last October’s “Against The Wall” police brutality PSA from Harry Belafonte‘s social justice nonprofit Sankofa.
