This episode of The Authority is about NBA superstar Lebron James and his social activism in recent years. I discuss where he started from regarding his early years as an NBA player who was reluctant to speak out on social issues…to where he is now in which he is an unapologetic, conscientious speaker of political and racial justice. The evolution of Lebron James as a speaker of racial and political truth is more fascinating as his fame has only progressed throughout the years in which now there is a majority consensus that places him as the face of the NBA and the face of sports in America. I will discuss the social activism of Lebron James with my guest Dr. David Leonard who is a national scholar on race, popular culture and sports.
