Election Day, oh election day, where every four years the people get to decide who will be the next leader of the “free world.” November 8, 2016 might be one of the most important election days this country has seen in a long time, and folks are turning out.
EBONY’s leadership has taken a stand against hate and is supporting Hillary Clinton. The rise of Donald Trump, and the racism and sexism his candidacy has unleashed, will be an ugly mark on America’s history for years to come. But today we can control that narrative and let our voices be heard.
Your vote matters, whether it is a vote for president or your local legislation. Do your part and get out there and vote!
We rounded up a few of our favorite Black Hollywood stars who are proud to let you know got up, showed up and voted!
