3 months 2 weeks ago
"The Heritage: Black Athletes, A Divided America, and the Politics of Patriotism featuring Howard Bryant, ESPN Senior Writer and NPR Correspondent, author of Shut Out: A Story of Race and Baseball in Boston and The Last Hero: A Life of Henry Aaron It may make people uncomfortable, but Im pleased that Howard Bryant has chosen to tell the story of our heritage, and even more pleased that there are still ballplayers today who are willing to stand up for what they think is right. Henry Aaron, Mayor League Baseball Hall of Famer Howard Bryant will discuss his new book The Heritage which is the story of the rise, fall, and fervent return of the athlete-activist. Through deep research & many interviews with some of sports best- known stars " including Colin Kaepernick, David Ortiz, Chris Webber " and others, Bryant will detail the collision of post-9/11 sports in America and the politically engaged post-Ferguson Black athlete. Hell contextualize their protests by tracing the history of political-social activism of Black athletes, in the face of the racist insistence that Black human beings can only be performative bodies. With Trump and NFL owners seeking to crush protest and punish players who simply will not tolerate them imposing their political brand on them and depriving them of their right to self-determination Howard's book could not be more timely.

Global Research News Hour: The Globalization of War - June 2018 Lecture by Michel Chossudovsky, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
This week's Global Research News Hour airs a recording of a lecture by Professor Michel Chossudovsky, delivered June 8, 2018 in Regina, Saskatchewan. The lecture is based on his book, The Globalization of War: America's Long War on Humanity. In this speech, Professor Chossudovsky postulates that the US and its Western allies have embarked on a hegemonic war of conquest, using the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks as a pre-text. Further exacerbating this diabolical agenda is the complicity of media and co-opted movements which refuse to challenge the pre-text of a war on terrorism or of 'humanitarian interventions.' Professor Chossudovsky is Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa and the Founder and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization. He is the award-winning author of 11 books and numerous academic articles. His site is globalresearch.ca
