Howard Bryant on the Sports Strikes Against Racism

ESPN’s Howard Bryant joins the show to talk about the historic week in sports and politics.


This week we speak to Full Dissidence author and ESPN columnist Howard Bryant about a historic week in the world of sports and what it could mean going forward. Howard is a must-listen and he has some trenchant words about everything happening.

We also have some ‘Choice Words’ about how these sports strikes against racism could influence the labor movement. In addition, we have a special ‘Just Stand Up’ segment that consists of a great interview with the legendary freedom fighter and NBA three-point champion Craig Hodges. All this and more on this week’s show!
