Thursday's Your Call: What role should athletes play in our political dialogue?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with former Olympic sprinter John Carlos and sportswriter Dave Zirin about their book, The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed the World. Carlos is famous for his politically-charged Black Power salute with Tommie Smith at the 1968 Olympics. How much power does a professional athlete have to speak out to the world beyond sports? And why do we listen? Join us at 10 or email us at feedback@yourcallradio.org. It's Your Call, with Matt Martin, and You.
