Carmelo Anthony Marches in Freddie Gray Protest in hometown of Baltimore
Sporting a hoodie of his idol Cassius Clay, Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony marched down the streets of Baltimore with former Def Jam executive Kevin Liles in a protest for Freddie Gray.
“This is my community,” Anthony said to CNN’s Ryan Young. “This is not just my community — it’s everybody’s community. It’s America’s community. So for me to come back here and be part of a community where I grew up at, and really get a chance to kind of talk to the people and get a feel for what’s going on … I had to come. It was only right for me to come down here.”
