A Reckoning on Race with Doug Baldwin

Group 4 Created with Sketch.
Free, RSVP required

One year after the murder of George Floyd, the reckoning over race in America continues. The mass protests that followed the killing of Floyd included calls for the end of policing as we know it and demanded that we reexamine systemic inequities. Sports leagues and media companies prominently joined a cascade of anti-racist commitments. Even the NFL, notorious for its resistance to social justice efforts, declared themselves allies. A year later, we look back with one of our region’s most famously frank athletes and ask the question: How much has actually changed in America?
