Insecure's Kendrick Sampson Wants to Make Sure You Don't Ghost the Midterms

Insecure’s Kendrick Sampson doesn’t shy away from discussing politics or its impact on people’s daily lives. In fact, the actor and activist has been pretty outspoken about social issues such as police brutality and institutional racism.


Recently, Sampson stopped by The Root and we asked him about why midterms matter, the importance of voting, plus who he’s keeping an eye on this election season.

Jessica Moulite is an award-winning Video Producer at The Root passionate about dismantling unjust societal power structures and all things Black culture. She's also probably watching “Living Single.”



I’m blowing off my cousin’s 50th birthday party in order to vote. (Her sister invited me too late for me to arrange to do an absentee ballot.)
