John Boyega Thanks Supporters For 'Love' After Speech at Protest But Says Black Community Still Needs 'Everyone'

John Boyega is sharing his thanks to supporters after giving a passionate speech ahead of the weekend at a protest in London.

“I want to thank you all for the love and support you have shared over the last few days, although nothing I have done is for praise, or is truly even enough, in the grand scheme of things,” the 28-year-old actor shared on Instagram.

John adds that the fight isn’t over though. He continued, “This is an intense time for our community, and the most important thing is for us to maintain momentum and not lose sight of how critical it is to pursue long term solutions and commitments, for the sake of our generation, and the next. Our individual pursuits of success and belonging remain, but now more than ever, it’s important to use this movement as fuel to inspire new ways of thinking, building, and growing, together. I believe any great movement starts with a renewal of the mind.”

“I’ll continue to use my platform to fight against the injustices and inequalities in our community, no matter what,” he promises. “Nonetheless, one man can’t do it alone – I need you, and we need each other!”

John concludes that the Black community needs “everyone, across industry’s, soci-economic backgrounds, countries, to unite with a shared goal of REAL change.”
