Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, will be the presenting sponsors of the Black College Football Hall of Fame's "The Road to Equality" event next month, the New Orleans Saints quarterback tweeted Thursday.

This is the latest in the Brees' efforts to be "allies" for the Black community and "part of the solution" in the fight for racial equality and social justice.

They vowed to do so earlier this month after the quarterback's comments about "disrespecting the flag" by kneeling during the national anthem caused widespread backlash. Brees later apologized multiple times and said he gained a greater understanding from friends and teammates about why his comments "completely missed the mark."
