Members of the Clemson football team, including Trevor Lawrence, will lead an on campus protest Saturday at 6pm at Clemson University. The protest comes in the wake of the tragic passing of George Floyd, and numerous protests throughout the country. 

Also involved in the organization of this protest by the football team: Cornell Powell, Darien Rencher, and Mike Jones jr.

Monday, Dabo Swinney released a 14 minute video in which he highlighted his stance on racial inequality, and addressed incidents including a racial slur used at practice by assistant coach Danny Pearman in an attempt to correct player language.

The protest will begin at Bowman Field.
