Members Forum: Sports Activism on the Global Podium
Fast forward fifty years. Taking a knee has replaced the raised fist. The sports field continues to present itself as a strong platform to promote civil and human rights awareness.
Dr. John Carlos and Mel Pender, both 1968 Olympic medalists, will share their thoughts on how sports serve as a voice for civil movements.
Mel Pender will sign his book “Expression of Hope: The Mel Pender Story” following the program. The book will be available for purchase for $20, cash only.
*Council members only. Complimentary for members. Join today!
