What happens when athletes use their moments on the field, the court, the track or the pitch to make a political statement? Do we have different expectations of who they are and what they are or should be doing? Dr. Amy Bass, professor of History and director of the Honors Program at The College of New Rochelle, will discuss the intersections between politics and sports, from her work on the black power protests at the Olympic Games in 1968 to her most recent book, “One Goal,” about Somali refugees in Maine and soccer.
