Even as conservative critics call for her to be ousted from the Olympic squad, track and field athlete Gwen Berry won’t back down after protesting the American flag and national anthem during the Olympic trials. Amira Rose Davis joins the show to contextualize Berry in a long history of Black and female athlete activists. She also explains the personal risks these athletes take in peacefully protesting, even as institutions began paying lip service to the Black Lives Matter cause.
Guest: Amira Rose Davis, assistant professor of history and African American studies at Penn State University and co-host of the feminist sports podcast, Burn It All Down.
Podcast production by Ahyiana Angel and Jasmine Ellis.
