The Nation Magazine says
Join The Nation magazine's award-winning sportswriter, Dave Zirin, for a hard-hitting conversation about race, gender, politics and sports with the man called "the best sportswriter in the United States," by the legendary Robert Lipsyte.

*Have professional sports helped break down race barriers, or helped the wealthy, white elite to profit by exploiting people of color?
*How do athletes perpetuate gender stereotypes or challenge them?
*What is the future of sports in a world with a disappearing middle class, a growing awareness that all lives matter, and a shifting gender consciousness?
*How can sports promote a social justice agenda?

Come prepared to share your love of the game--and to ask the tough questions, together with journalist, UW lecturer, and host of the evening, Caley Cook.

This event is brought to you by the UW Department of Communication and co-sponsored by the UW Center for Human Rights as part of The Nation's 150th anniversary event tour.
