For six hours Thursday evening, University of Wisconsin star basketball forward Nigel Hayes tweeted 44 times supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

The tweets come as unrest in Charlotte, North Carolina  stretches into its second day after a police officer killed an unarmed black man while his hands were raised. Another black man has since suffered a gunshot wound during the protests and is in critical condition.
