Barack Obama's New PSA Features Cameos From Chance The Rapper And Stephen Curry

"I am my brother's keeper."

Former President Barack Obama continues to give back in his time out of office, and this time, he had some help from a couple of big names — Chance the Rapper and NBA star Stephen Curry. The two appear with Obama in an inspiring PSA for the former president's My Brother's Keeper Alliance.

The MBK Alliance was first launched in 2014 "to address persistent opportunity gaps facing boys and young men of color." The new PSA begins with a young man watching a speech from Obama, in which he declares, "There's nothing, not a single thing, that's more important to the future of America than whether or not young people all across this country can achieve their dreams."


The young man then begins a speech of his own, addressing other young people. As people watch his speech on their phones — that includes Chance, Curry, and Obama himself — they begin to speak the words along with him. "We are the ones to act, to bring our unique gifts and talent, to make sure America lives up to its grand ideals, for our children and our neighbor's children," they say. "Because our futures are all tied up together."

"I am my brother's keeper," they say at the end of the video, which encourages viewers to join the Alliance.

President Obama has devoted much of his time since leaving the White House to inspiring young people. Earlier this year, he hosted a global summit in Chicago with the Obama Foundation. Young leaders were encouraged to apply for a spot at the event, and a two-year fellowship was announced.
