Alabama football coach Nick Saban leads hundreds of athletes in Black Lives Matter march
Hundreds of University of Alabama athletes marched on campus on Monday to protest racial injustice, with football coach Nick Saban seen leading the crowd in photos and videos of the event.
Athletes were seen wearing “Black Lives Matter” and “Defend Black Lives” shirts and carrying signs during the demonstration, which, according to AL.com, included a march from Mal Moore athletic facility to Foster Auditorium’s schoolhouse door, followed by speeches from Saban and others.
The schoolhouse door once served as the infamous background of then-Alabama Gov. George Wallace resisting desegregation in 1963.
