Racial tension has been on high alert since the killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castille at the hands of police.
The new PSA (hosted by Campaign Zero), features Michael Ealy, Tika Sumpter, Marlon Wayans, Meagan Good, Nicole Ari Parker, Boris Kodjoe, Hosea Chanchez, Kimberly Elise, Aja Naomi King, and several others who teamed up to help spread awareness on the social issues that plague the black community.
Each person recites lyrics from the civil rights anthem “We Shall Overcome,” and at the end, Aja asks “When is someday?”
“We shall overcome. We shall overcome. We shall overcome, someday,” the celebrities say. “Deep in my heart I do believe that we shall overcome, someday. We’ll walk hand in hand. We’ll walk hand in hand. We’ll walk hand in hand, someday.”
“We have been fighting against systematic racism, wrongful incarceration and police brutality for longer than most of us has been alive. #somedayistoday”
In another clip, Beyonce’s mother Tina Lawson asks, “When is someday?”
Cedric the Entertainer, Fonzworth Bentley, Kym Whitley and Alfre Woodard answer the question, “Someday is TODAY.”

The films have a similar tone to last month’s celebrity-filled “23 Ways” PSA, in which a group of A-listers, including Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Queen Latifah, Pink and Adam Levine, joined forces to explain “23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America.”
“Go to WeAreHereMovement.com to tell President Obama and Congress that the time for change is now. We demand radical transformation to heal the long history of systematic racism so that all Americans have the equal right live and pursue happiness,” Keys said at the end of the PSA.
