However, on Instagram, he did plead with his followers to help him take action by voting this November.

‘I’ve been watching and processing the same injustice and unrest as you all the last few months,’ Marshall said. ‘We have experienced this pain our entire life. The awareness and conversations being started by protests are great, but it can’t end there. I’m tired of talking that leads to nowhere. I’m calling on powerful networks to take a chance and showcase the most important message in our country right now.

‘The path toward real change flows through the ballot box. The power belongs in the people’s hands. I’m not telling you to vote or who to vote for. I’m reminding you that you CAN vote. It is your RIGHT to have your voice heard.’
