Is Colin Kaepernick the first to use sports as a platform for protest? How is the First Amendment shaping the debate? Does labor law provide protections for athletes who protest? Join Professors Kate Andrias, Sherman Clark and Len Niehoff as they discuss these and other key legal issues surrounding the NFL protests, Trump and racism.
This event will be hosted by the Michigan Journal of Race & Law and the Sports Law Society, in conjunction with the Racial Justice Coalition and the Black Students Association, and will take place tomorrow, October 11th, at 12pm in Hutchins Hall 250. Lunch from Curry On will be provided.
