Former NFL player, artist, and author Aaron Maybin has a new book about history, politics, and his work doing mutual-aid organizing and education in the communities of Baltimore. Aaron is always great to talk to and, as usual, he doesn’t disappoint.
On this week’s show, we have Choice Words about the way that the North Carolina Tar Heels managed injuries in their national championship game against the Kansas Jayhawks. We have Just Stand Up awards for Brian Flores and the NFL coaches willing to tell the truth about the racist hiring practices employed by the league. For New York Governor Kathy Hochul, who pushed for public welfare in the taxpayer funding of the Buffalo Bills new stadium, we have a Just Sit Down award. Additionally, I have special comment on the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s breaking the color line. All this and more on this week’s show!
