At the Intersection of Race, Sports & Law Lecture

Sports is a pastime and obsession for many Americans and an arena for athletes that dangles a lure of money and fame at the risk of injury and obscurity. Sports is a mirror of our society that reflects beyond the playing field into politics, race, and other hot-button issues.

In a lively discussion, American University law professor Jeremi Duru and local poet and political activist Ethelbert Miller will talk about the exploitation of athletes, physical trauma, taking a knee during the national anthem, and the economics of sports in the context of race and of youth athletics. George Washington University law professor Ralph Steinhardt will moderate the discussion in this free event sponsored by the Friends of the Takoma Park Maryland Library and the City of Takoma Park’s We Are Takoma performance series.
