Harrison Barnes, Tobias Harris, Jrue Holiday, Juan Toscano-Anderson, and Carmelo Anthony are all doing their part to continue the NBA Hall of Famer’s legacy of activism, which dates back to the civil rights movement.

The Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Social Justice Champion Award, founded by the the National Basketball Association, highlights the league’s players that have been using their platform to effect social change and help make strides in the fight for equality, not only in their communities but also our broader society. EBONY gathered this year’s finalists—Harrison Barnes, Tobias Harris, Jrue Holiday, Juan Toscano-Anderson, and the inaugural winner—Carmelo Anthony, to discuss the work they are doing to drive equality for all marginalized people and why it’s important to take a stand.
