The Louisville men’s basketball team led an hour-long demonstration on Friday, calling for unity, tolerance and equality two days after no officers were charged for their role in Breonna Taylor’s death.

“It hits different when it happens in your own backyard,” a player said in Louisville’s video. “I think I can speak for a lot of guys here when I say we’re hurting.”

Louisville players: ‘It’s time to take a stand’ Coach Chris Mack and players David Johnson, Charles Minlend and Malik Williams gave speeches and led the peaceful march from Cardinal Stadium to Throws Field, per the Louisville Courier-Journal.

It was the 121st day of protests in Louisville since Taylor’s death.

Hundreds of Cardinals athletes and citizens joined them chanting “Breonna Taylor” and “No justice, no peace.”

Players wore black T-shirts with the Cardinal logo and “BLM.”
