KHQ.com - Actor Samuel L. Jackson is calling on all of his celebrity peers who poured ice water over their heads this summer in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to another kind of challenge. Jackson wants people to sing the "We Ain't Gonna Stop Till People Are Free," song, which has been sung by protesters during demonstrations over the recent killings of unarmed black men by police, in an effort to raise awareness of police brutality.


Jackson says, "All you celebrities out there who poured ice water on your head, here's a chance to do something else. I challenge all of you to sing the 'We Ain't Gonna Stop, Till People Are Free' song. Here we go."


He then sings the song, 


"I can hear my neighbor cryin', 

'I can't breathe.' Now I'm in the struggle, and I can't leave. 

Callin' out the violence of the racist police. 

We ain't gonna stop, till people are free. 

We ain't gonna stop, till people are free."
