Event description

Description

When Colin Kaepernick made a stand during the national anthem he joined a long line of sports figures that have protested racism through their gestures and actions. Join Bleacher Report contributor Rembert Browne and The Nation’s Dave Zirin for a conversation about the platform these athletes have, and the swirling debate around their actions.

Offered in connection with the exhibition “Until Everyone Has It Made: Jackie Robinson’s Legacy” at BHS Pierrepont.
