Dave Zirin With Michael Bennett: Sports & Politics In The U.S. says
Dave Zirin has been called “America’s best sportswriter,” praised for his bold positions on current issues in the world of athletics. Zirin has written several articles focused on NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s controversial refusal to stand for the National Anthem and his statement that he “will not show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” Though sharply criticized by many, his protest has spurred a movement among many of his fellow athletes, from the pros to high school students (Garfield in Seattle!), who have adopted the gesture. Joined onstage by Seahawks player Michael Bennett, Zirin will discuss the effects and implications of this kind of social protest and how he thinks it will impact our culture, in sports and beyond.
