A bit short for now, but more to come later..
So, as basketball season is in full swing and the political atmosphere is rather chaotic, I have been struck by a topic that has been in my mind for a while now, the role of athletes and social change.
The year 2016 and now into 2017 has seen an uprising in political activism especially from celebrities and athletes. From NFL star Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem to The WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx wearing Black Lives Matter T-shirts during warmups, athletes are taking a stand which makes me curious and begs the question, can athletes make social change, and should they?
Sorry it’s a bit jumbled…More to come later.
