In a year that has seen multiple shootings and the deaths of legendary pop artist Prince and sports icon Muhammad Ali, Franklin told the audience: "I know these are very, very difficult days and we've had a lot of loss and a lot of hurt — and I want you to know that even when you feel like you've hit rock bottom, often you find that God is the rock at the bottom." more >>

He spoke after a video featuring himself, Harry Belafonte, Nate Parker and Debbie Allen talking about using their fame to push for racial justice.
"Now, this award, this is not for me. This is for the real organizers all over the country. The activists, the civil rights attorneys, the struggling parents, the families, the teachers, the students that are realizing that a system built to divide and impoverish and destroy us cannot stand if we do. Alright? It's kind of basic mathematics. The more we learn about who we are and how we got here, the more we will mobilize," he said after thanking his parents and wife. more >>
