The boycotts, protests, marches walkouts across the sports landscape continued Monday and this time it was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where legendary football coach Nick Saban led a march of hundreds of the university’s student-athletes which was organized to protest racial injustice in the United States.

It was the latest powerful show of solidarity by athletes all around the country.

According to a report from AL.com:

Saban was at the front of a large crowd of players who walked from the Mal Moore athletic facility to Foster Auditorium’s schoolhouse door.

Senior running back Najee Harris walked next to Saban wearing a T-shirt reading, “Defend Black Lives.” Other players walked behind Saban holding a banner reading, “Black Lives Matter.”

Saban later spoke in front of the schoolhouse door, where Alabama governor George Wallace infamously resisted federal desegregation efforts in 1963.

“Today I’m like a proud parent,” Saban said at the end of the march. “I’m proud of our team, I’m proud of our messengers over here and I’m very proud of the message. I’m very proud of the ’All lives can’t matter until Black lives matter’ video that we did early on that I think had a very positive impact. That was something we did together as a team.

“This is something that the team decided to do together as a team, so I’m very proud and supportive of what they are trying to say, and in a peaceful and intelligent way. I’m very pleased to be here today.”
