Most of the Dunbar football team elected not to stand for the National Anthem before Thursday night's game at Welcome Stadium against Thurgood Marshall. The Wolverines won the game 42-16.

Most of the Dunbar Wolverines on Thursday night continued their part in the national protest, started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, against the killing of black men by police.

News Center 7 Sports Director Mike Hartsock was there to capture the protest, which occurred at Welcome Stadium before the game against Thurgood Marshall High.
