Race on the playing field

Sports is one of America's most visible and profitable cultural arenas. From low-wage labor in billion-dollar stadiums to racist team names and defiant owners, it's also the place where some of our most hotly contested political issues play out. On this panel, we'll talk about the issues that are shifting our sports landscape.

Speakers: David Zirin, Robert Holden, Jamilah King, Jeff Chang
