Oakland's own Marshawn Lynch & Ryan Coogler, along with rapper J. Cole, sat down for a discussion at Riverside Church in New York at its annual MLK Now event. A number of other prominent figures spoke at the event including Black Thought, Ta-Nehisi Coates and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Fans quickly gravitated to a portion of the discussion where Coogler asked Marshawn about his thoughts on there being a lack of Black NFL owners in the league.

Fans were quick to embrace and celebrate Lynch's thoughtful response along with the two Oakland natives having such an honest discussion about our communities.
