Sports Unions & Black Lives Matter

Shut up and dribble. Shut up and play! Millionaires don’t have the right to speak! Do we believe in the “I’m not black, I’m O.J.” sentiment when it comes to the professional athlete? Are professional athletes hurting or helping social justice movements? This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll ask former NFL player and players association employee Nolan Harrison, Dr. Shawn Alexander, professor of African and African American Studies at KU, and KU professor Dr. Francis Kish. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am. #laborradiopod #LaborHistory
