You might hear Donald Glover’s voice in your next workplace sexual harassment training.
Rashida Jones has directed a new animated public service announcement for the Time’s Up legal defense fund, narrated by Childish Gambino himself. The fund was launched to help victims secure legal representation and public relations help after facing sexual harassment at work. The new PSA is about how people “suffer day to day with these nuances and micro-agressions which we may not have the language to defend ourselves against.”
Jones says of Glover, “I really respect his ability to be a part of and criticize culture at the same time -- I think it’s a really hard balance to strike. And also to make really good [stuff]! His music is great, his TV show is so innovative -- he’s got that balance that very few artists do, where he’s able to be true to himself and be honest and make it feel fresh.” She also praised his “cool, laid-back energy” which she says helps the PSA not come off as preachy.
