About a year ago, Al also made national headlines for taking a knee at a high school volleyball game in solidarity with a Black female athlete who was being harassed after she kneeled during the National Anthem to protest police brutality.
He explains his decision:
"The decision [the players] made to kneel at their last game, they caught a lot of flak for that. I saw that on the news," Woolum said. "I looked when their next game was, and I came to support them to let them know somebody in the white community cares."
Al is a friend and ally, not a violent criminal. Please sign this petition to urge Dallas Police to drop the charges against Al!
