Where sports and politics collide, hosted by Nation magazine Sports Editor Dave Zirin


John Carlos & Wyomia Tyus LIVE from Cal State East Bay

This week on Edge of Sports, we have two sports/politics legends of 1968 and we speak to them in front of 500 people in a packed Oakland auditorium. They are DR. JOHN CARLOS, who raised his fist on the medal stand in Mexico City along with Tommie Smith, and the great WYOMIA TYUS, the first person to ever win back-to-back 100 meter gold at the Olympic games in 1964 and 1968. Ms. Tyus also stood in solidarity with John Carlos and Tommie Smith although that has been written out of most mainstream histories. This week’s column read is on “The Hidden History of Muhammad Ali and the Black Panthers” and we give our “Just Stand Up Award” to the Jayhawks: aka the people in the Athletic Department at the University of Kansas.See the full event video: for Sport and Social Justice:’s column: “The Black Panthers: Vanguard Of The Revolution” thanks to the Center Sports and Social Justice at Cal State East Bay and Prof. Rita Liberti. —-This episode of Edge of Sports is brought to you by FreshBooks.
