JAY-Z’S ROC NATION HELPS GET PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE CASE AGAINST 6TH GRADER DISMISSED

Jay-Z's Roc Nation continues making an impact outside the world of music.

After advocating for Meek Mill and 21 Savage's freedom, the label's social justice department Team ROC confirmed on Tuesday (March 5) that they appointed lawyer Alex Spiro to take on the case of sixth grader Jabari Talbot, who was arrested after he refused to stand up for the pledge of allegiance in class. That same day, Roc reps confirmed that the case had, in fact, been dropped.

“Jabari is a courageous and intelligent young man who deserves all the credit for standing up for his beliefs,” Spiro said in a statement. “He should’ve never been arrested or entangled in this situation—his freedom of speech rights were clearly protected under the 1st Amendment.”
