Black athletes raising their voices and taking a knee against injustice are under attack by the White House, commentators, coaches, and many fellow Americans. Three writers will examine the role Black male and female athletes have played in the long struggle against racism and injustice and the barriers and criticism they have faced for their politics. Professor Randy Roberts will discuss «Blood Brothers: The Fatal Friendship between Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X». Professor Amira Rose Davis will preview her forthcoming book, «Can’t Eat a Medal: The Lives and Labors of Black Women Athletes in the Age of Jim Crow». And, ESPN’s Howard Bryant will discuss «The Heritage: Black Athletes, A Divided America and the Politics of Patriotism».
