Over the past few weeks former B2K manager Chris Stokes, rapper Soulja Boy and T.I. and his wife Tiny Harris have been accused of sexual misconduct [click here here and here if you missed that]. 

In an open letter posted on the Times Up website the organization vows to support sexual assault victims of Black celebrities... 

The letter reads  

Dear Survivor,
Over the last week, we know countless of you have come forward with credible accusations of horrific sexual abuse and violence at the hands of Black celebrities – including Soulja Boy and T.I. and Tiny. R&B singer Raz B has spoken out once again about his experience of sexual abuse – yet no media outlets, corporate actors, or systems of justice have centered survivors’ stories or promised accountability. Like you, we are carrying the emotional weight of this news and know that we are reliving a collective trauma akin to the exposing of Cosby and R. Kelly.
Today, we write to hold space for what this moment is bringing up for Black survivors....
