Dr. Harry Edwards is in the Edge of Sports house!
Malcolm is gone. MLK is gone. Ali is gone.
But a man who deserves to be right up there with them in my opinion (as he is one of my never-met-mentors) can be heard below on the Edge of Sports with Dave Zirin.
While this is one of Dr. Edward’s shorter interviews on the Edge of Sports, the fire is just as fierce and one I recommend having the kids sit down and listen to if you are wondering:
“What do I tell them about this country after the election?”
“How should we look at today and tomorrow?”
“Does it really matter if you vote or not?”
This is a terrific homeschool lesson for kids 10 and up who can have a bit of an understanding and really know who Colin Kaepernick is and the controversy and conversation surrounding his stance on standing for the so-called National Anthem. Dr. Edwards even gives his opinion on whether he thinks Kap was correct by not voting and stating his position publicly.
If you use this lesson for History, Sociology, Psychology, Civics or anything else, definitely let us know we would love to hear the kind of questions the kids asked and where the conversation went.
