Taking a Knee: Sports and Activism – Episode 53 – The Oxford Comment

On this episode, we examine the difficulties athletes face when they speak out on hot-button subjects with the help of documentary filmmaker Trish Dalton, co-director and co-producer of HBO Sports’ “Student Athlete,” and Robert Turner, author of “Not For Long: The Life and Career of the NFL Athlete.” Activism can be incredibly difficult in professional sports, let alone in collegiate athletics, and we look at the political plights of athletes in the wake of the firestorm created by quarterback Colin Kaepernick a few years ago.
