Meek Mill has shared a heartbreaking public service announcement dedicated to Antwon Rose II. At only 17, the unarmed honor roll student was fatally shot by an East Pittsburgh officer on June 18, 2018. Told with the help of Rose's mother, Michelle Kenney, the new PSA is designed to unite a divided country.
"My hope is this PSA will inspire people to come together and create change in our communities," Meek said in a statement. "Our country needs more communication and understanding–not hate and division–so it’s important that we collectively start the conversation and work to leave a lasting impact for future generations." The video is the second PSA to come from the Responsibility Program, which is lead by Roc Nation's Team ROC.
"I’m very grateful that Meek Mill and the DreamChasers put this PSA together about Antwon and highlighted the need for universal respect," Michelle Kenney added. "To make our communities better, we must show each other more love, care, generosity and empathy. I’m proud that Meek is using his platform to send that positive message and honor my son."
Team ROC previously teamed up with Philadelphia Eagles player Malcolm Jenkins to tell the story of Danroy "DJ" Henry," who was also fatally shot by a police officer. Roc Nation plans to highlight more stories like these ones every 2 to 3 weeks.
