The Game Changers: From Raised Fists to #TakeAKnee

Thursday, November 16, 2017

11:30 am - 1:00 pm

We invite you attend The Game Changers: From Raised Fist to #TakeAKnee. More than a year has passed since Colin Kaepernick first took a knee during the national anthem. Since then, the #TakeAKnee movement has dominated conversations on a national stage. Yet, despite the recent attention, this isn’t the first time social activism and sports have mixed and had explosive results. John Carlos’ and Tommie Smith’s clenched fists, thrust high in the air during the 1968 Olympics, drew similarly diverse reactions of outrage and support. RSVP here.
