Carmen Rodgers took the stage at the Javits Center Tuesday to perform the anthem.

By taking a knee Rodgers joined in a nationwide protest of racial oppression and inequality in the United States started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The crowd gave Rodgers a warm ovation following her performance.
