If you've turned on the news lately, you'd know that people have been taking a stand on racial injustice and police violence. Major companies like Nike, Twitter, and Citigroup have spoken out and aligned themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement. But, some have called out brands for their canned response.

Does this sound familiar? “We at [Brand] are committed to fighting injustice by posting images to Twitter that express our commitment to fighting injustice."

How can brands respond to #BlackLivesMatter without facing a backlash from customers? Today, I have Michael B. Jordan, an Atlanta-based writer, and editor whose work has been published at The Wall Street Journal, Playboy, Rolling Stone, Thrillist, and more.

  2. Tips to improve your writing from someone whose work has been published in The Wall Street Journal, Playboy, Rolling Stone, and more.

  3. A simple tip to cure writer's block.
