Run the Jewels, a rap duo composed of EL-P, and Killer Mike, They are both social activists and their lyrics are a reflection of that.

Jessie Williams, a Grey’s Anatomy actor, is also a social activist and uses his twitter account to spread awareness.

Janet Mock, her book Redefining Realness discusses intersectionality and I think her #GirlsLikeUs is also meant to shed light on that.
