Celtics' Jaylen Brown drives 15 hours from Boston to lead peaceful protest in Atlanta

Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown led a peaceful protest march through Atlanta on Saturday night.

Brown, who streamed part of the march live via his Instagram account and also posted videos of speeches to his page, said during the livestream that he'd driven 15 hours from Boston in order to protest in Atlanta, which is about 20 minutes southeast of his native Marietta, Georgia.

"I drove 15 hours to get to Georgia, my community," Brown said. "This is a peaceful protest. Being a celebrity, being an NBA player don't exclude me from no conversations at all.
