By Rob Knox, Associate AD for Strategic Communications, April 23, 2021

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Several UNC Greensboro (UNCG) student-athletes, coaches and athletics department staff members marched with a purpose from campus to the Guilford County Courthouse during the Equity March Friday afternoon.

Carrying signs with “I Am Not A Threat”, “Black Lives Matter”, “End Police Violence” and chanting “No Justice, No Peace” and “Say It Loud, I Am Black and I am Proud,” the group walked down Market Street in a march that was held to promote the fight for racial equality and support the inclusive environment within UNCG Athletics.

As everybody peacefully walked, passing motorists honked car horns in support of the message and onlookers snapped photos. The march started on campus in front of the entrance to Fleming Gym and continued to Market Street.
