In July, Cube released a video entitled, “What In It For Us,” calling politicians to sign the “Contract with Black America” before expecting Black voters to support them at the polls. Now, he’s coming to the red table to explain the motivation behind his movement. 

Watch the exclusive preview of his appearance on Red Table Talk below. 

Ice Cube's contract states that it was “written in the backdrop of the killing of George Floyd, which set off a wave of protests not seen since the Civil Rights Era of the 1950's and '60's, and a global pandemic in which the Black mortality rate is more than double the White rate and in which 45% (nearly half) of Black-owned businesses closed.”
