On Friday, August 28, 2020, protesters gathered at Heavener Hall in remembrance of the people who lost their lives due to racial injustices. The protesters marched down W. University Avenue, where members from the men’s and women’s UF basketball teams, football players and Dan Mullen, the head football coach joined in support. Everyone marched to Bo Diddley Plaza where they sat in silence for eight minutes, the same amount of time George Floyd laid with a knee to the back of his neck. 

The protest stayed peaceful and police officers drove alongside marchers.
