Over the weekend, protests broke out in St. Louis, Missouri after former police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted for the murder of Anthony Lamar Smith. 

While some celebs canceled concerts in the city due to protests, Nick Cannon was right in the thick of it. 

Journalist and producer Anam Siddiq captured the entertainer sporting his usual turban and a black Colin Kaepernick jersey as he marched along in solidarity with protestors. 

Cannon also shared video on his Instagram, writing, "St. Louis we out here in the streets with you! #FrontLiners #BlackLivesMatter"

St. Louis we out here in the streets with you! #FrontLiners #BlackLivesMatter

The entertainer is no stranger when it comes to supporting and speaking out about social justice. He was seen last year at a Black Lives Matter event in New York City and shared a powerful spoken-word poem to show his support. 

It's always great to see stars using their platform for change and we salute Nick for being on the frontlines.
