Boston’s CBS News affiliate reports:
The Boston Red Sox have placed a massive Black Lives Matter billboard visible to drivers along the Massachusetts Turnpike. The massive billboard features the words Black Lives Matter in Red Sox font on a black background with the Red Sox logo at the end.
Earlier this year, the Red Sox showed their support for the movement by spelling out Black Lives Matter on the scoreboard on the Green Monster at Fenway Park.
“Our anger and grief must translate to action,” the team wrote on its official Twitter account. “We have a responsibility to use our platform to amplify messages of truth and justice.”
