Michael B. Jordan has been campaigning door-to-door in Georgia in an effort to encourage black voters to turn out for next week's midterms elections.

Partnering with progressive civil rights group Color of Change PAC, the "Black Panther" actor is telling voters how important their votes are in the midterms under the the slogan #VotingWhile Black.

"Michael is really smart and really committed to using his platform," a spokesperson for the PAC told The Hill. "A lot of celebrities engage in a lot of different ways and what we found really exciting is that Michael wanted to talk to the people and be with the people."

The spokesperson said the PAC is boosting the campaign on social media and with selected ad buys in places such as Florida, Georgia, Michigan, and Nevada.

Jordan isn't the only celebrity pressing for black Georgians to make it to the ballot box on Tuesday.

Oprah Winfrey has been out campaigning for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who is seeking to become the first black female governor in U.S. history.

Actor Will Ferrell has also visited Georgia to recruit volunteers for Abram's campaign.

The Georgia governor's race is particularly tight, with RealClearPolitics putting Republican Brian Kemp an average of 1.4 points ahead of Abrams.
