CANCELED: Michael Bennett - Things That Make White People Uncomfortable — in conversation with Dave Zirin — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Friday, June 29, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

This event has been canceled.

Michael Bennett is a Super Bowl Champion and a three-time Pro Bowl defensive end. As Senator Bernie Sanders says, he could easily “make his mark through accomplishment on the field. Instead Michael has chosen to use his voice and his platform to fight injustice.” In Things that Make White People Uncomfortable, which Naomi Klein calls “pure fire,” Bennett writes about police violence, the role of protest in history, and his own responsibility as a role model to speak out. Following in the footsteps of activist-athletes from Muhammad Ali to Colin Kaepernick, Bennett demonstrates his exceptional leadership both on and off the field.

Bennett will be in conversation with co-author Dave Zirin, sports editor for the Nation and author of several books, most recently Brazil's Dance with the Devil.
