Remember that through 2015–16 the University of Missouri was a hotspot for protest following complaints of racism on campus. Athletes took center stage in the struggle which not only earned national acclaim but also sparked backlash from politicos and donors.
This week, we're seeing student athletes restart those efforts.
COLUMBIA, Mo. - Hundreds of University of Missouri athletes, students, coaches, and community members marched across MU's campus Wednesday to protest social injustices and police brutality across the nation. The University of Missouri Black Student-Athlete Association (BSAA), which formed in August, organized the march that started at the columns on Francis Quadrangle and ended with a sit-in and speeches from student-athletes at Faurot Field.
