ACTIVIST ATHLETES: Over the past years, we’ve seen a number of professional athletes speak out against racism and injustice. The response—from fans, owners, even the President—has ranged from support to outright hostility. Players have been called unpatriotic, accused of disrespecting the military, even blackballed from their leagues. What’s next for this movement? Writer/activist Shaun King leads former NBA player Etan Thomas (We Matter), the Nation’s Dave Zirin (Things That Make White People Uncomfortable; Edge of Sports imprint curator), and Olympian Iptihaj Muhammad (Proud) in a lively discussion about activism from their personal experience.
