In a video released by the White House on Saturday, President Obama mentors Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry, assisting him with his résumé, science experiment and even his jump shot. The video was released in support of Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative to encourage the mentorship of young men and boys of color.
As the video states, “you don’t need to be an NBA star or the President of the United State to be someone’s hero.”
Last week President Obama appeared in a PSA reaffirming the potential of young people of color.
“If we believe in their futures,” said the President, “they will believe in them too.”
