Student-athletes from Michigan and Eastern Michigan teamed up on Sunday in Ann Arbor, protesting the ongoing racial injustice that is occurring across the country.

Recently, Michigan football player Hunter Reynolds and Eastern Michigan’s Tariq Speights worked together to launch the protest in Ann Arbor, and include student-athletes from both schools. The two universities sit just six miles apart.

According to, the protest was peaceful and there were speakers at the beginning and end of the protest, and the march went through several blocks of downtown Ann Arbor.

“It’s just tiring waking up, going on Twitter, and seeing there’s been another instance of police brutality against an African American,” Reynolds said. “Even though it’s tiring, it’s something we have to continue to speak out against.”

The protest comes days after Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He has been paralyzed from the waist down as a result of the shooting, according to the Associated Press.
