On the latest episode of the Rex Chapman Show with Josh Hopkins, the guys are joined by ABA/NBA veteran Len Elmore, who is now a practicing attorney and professor for Columbia University. He discusses how his passion for both education and sports helped him flourish into the incredibly accomplished man he is both on and off the basketball court.  5:00 - How much of Len's upbringing during the Civil Rights Movement helped influence his pursuits later in life outside of basketball? 8:30 - It wasn't basketball, but baseball that Len wanted to pursue as a professional athlete. That was at least until his growth spurt changed everything. 9:30 - Len played basketball like Chief in One Flew Over The Cucko's Nest 13:00 - Len discusses his transition from growing up in New York, and attending college at Maryland. Basketball became the culture on that campus as they became one of the best teams in the country. 16:30 - As an accomplished broadcaster himself, of course the guys have to ask Len about calling the iconic Duke-Kentucky game that ended with Christian Laettner's game winner. 22:30 - Len recalls the impact that watching John Carlos and Tommie Smith in the 1968 Olympics had on him, combined with reading Malcom X's autobiography. He said it caused an awakening for him then, and he continues to hold those principles to this day. 37:30 - Len never felt like basketball was beneath him with all of his scholarly pursuits, but he just decided after 10 seasons he was just done. 42:30 - There were plenty of Len's former teammates who took to heart what advice he had for them, knowing everyone needed to find their life's work after basketball.  47:00 - Len and the rest of the Terps gave John Wooden, Bill Walton and UCLA their toughest test as they were in the greatest winning streak in college basketball history. 50:00 - The NCAA Tournament had to expand their field after Len and Maryland were left out after losing the ACC Tournament to NC State 52:00 - Even though they weren't close, the passing of Len Bias just absolutely rocked Len Elmore just like everyone at the time.

On October 16, 1968, two African-American Olympic athletes, Tommie Smith and John Carlos (who had just won gold and bronze respectively in the 200-meter sprint) took their place on the winners podium and each raised a black-gloved fist into the air as the United States National Anthem played. This act of protest on behalf of human rights would lead to a booing and hissing response from the audience and the eventual expulsion of both athletes involved.

It's an iconic image from the '68 Mexico City games: Tommie Smith and John Carlos bow their heads and raise their firsts on the podium. Though the pair endures as symbols of dissent, the meaning of their salute has evolved, and its legacy is complicated. Their act both paved the way for athlete protests but also led to the most consequential act against Olympic protests. But in 2022, will Rule 50 finally face its moment of reckoning? Hosted by Molly Bloom. Produced by FilmNation Entertainment in association with Gilded Audio.

There wasn't a specific plan on that day in Mexico City in October 1968, when 24-year-old Tommie Smith won the Olympic gold medal in the men's 200 meters and approached the podium alongside fellow American John Carlos. But both men knew they would protest racial injustice in some form. What they didn't know is that their actions would spark a legacy of athlete activism for decades to come. “We were preparing to walk across the track and get on the victory stand and receive the award. John Carlos and I had talked and we knew we were going to do something,” says Smith, now 76. “But nobody knew exactly what Tommie Smith and John Carlos were going to do, including Tommie Smith and John Carlos.” Smith and Carlos' gesture on a warm October night has become immortalized in Olympic lore over the last five decades. Their fists in the air have come to symbolize strength in the face of injustice, solidarity against our society's greatest ills. The raising of Smith's fist was a truly spontaneous act. Though the plan for a demonstration had been years in the making. Smith, the son of a field worker and cowboy in north Texas, made his way to California in 1965 as he joined the San Jose State track team. And he quickly helped the program become a national powerhouse. Smith set a world-record in May 1966 as he ran the 200 meters straight in 19.5 seconds, and he won the NCAA men's outdoor track and field championship one month later. Yet Smith's excellence didn't lead to admiration throughout the community. Smith and his fellow athletes were treated as second-class citizens the second they left the track. “San Jose State was the strongest track and field team in history. But nothing was really done about the negatives of being treated less than,” Smith says. “We would break a world record or run a good meet and we would still be relegated back to second-class status when we returned to campus or returned to our communities.” The athletes at San Jose State quickly became tired of the treatment they received outside of the track. And in October 1967, Smith and Co. chose to fight back. Smith and Carlos joined the the Olympic Project for Human Rights, a group founded by sociologist Harry Edwards in an attempt to protest against racial segregation in America and abroad. The group's aims weren't radical, especially by modern standards. But to Smith, they were revolutionary. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/unlabeled/support

“Liberal states are maliciously withholding COVID vaccines from white people, and Nancy Pelosi is responsible for the January 6th Insurrection.” Call it Diary of a Madman or Trump Trivia, but my left-side brain can't connect the lumpy Trumpy dots.  White Antivaxxers are now worried about being left out of vaccine distribution? The Trump army would follow Pelosi's instructions to raid her own office? There's no appropriate emoji. There's one black NFL head coach out of 32 professional teams while 60% of the players are black. The League's definition of Diversity & Inclusion doesn't seem to count for much.

Sports don't exist in a vacuum, and sometimes it is whether you win or lose and not how you play the game. Injustice and inequity are reflected and reinforced in sports as they are in all areas of our society. And sport has long served as an arena for the struggle for racial justice. Athletes such as Tommie Smith and John Carlos, to Colin Kaepernick have served as powerful agents for change. But even many of their fans continue to be uncomfortable about their protests on the podium at Olympic medal ceremonies or on the field during the National Anthem. What does the activism of athletes and our reception of it tell us about who we are?    Dr. Harry Edwards has had an outsize influence over the history, culture and understanding of the role of sports in society. Professor at UC Berkeley for 30 years, he invented a field of study, the sociology of sports, and provided the foundation for all its assertions. He was the lead organizer behind the Olympic Project for Human Rights which led to the most widely recognized protest in sports history – when American sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised Black Power salutes atop the Olympic medal stand in Mexico City in 1968. Beginning in the mid-1980s, he began consulting on issues of diversity for the NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball. He arranged seminars on finances and social interactions and essentially invented the modern system of player counseling and support.    Each year the cathedral chooses a theme for inspiration and reflection, and in 2021 our theme is healing. Join Dean Malcolm Clemens Young for a conversation with Dr. Edwards about sports, athletes and how they play a role in healing racial injustice and inequity.    You can help us bring the arts to life at Grace with a gift today to The Forum. Visit gracecathedral.org/givetograce and choose The Forum as the fund designation or text Think to 76278.        About the guest  Dr. Harry Edwards is considered the leading authority on developments at the interface of race, sport, and society and a pioneer in the development of the sociology of sport as an academic discipline in America. He was awarded an athletic scholarship to San Jose State University, and completed a M.A. and a Ph.D. in sociology at Cornell University. He was professor of Sociology at the University of California at Berkeley from 1970-2000. He was the lead organizer of the Olympic Project for Human Rights, and advocated a Black athlete boycott of the 1968 Olympics among other protest efforts to dramatize the racial inequities and barriers confronting Blacks in sport and society. Edwards became a consultant on issues of diversity for all three major sports. The programs and methods he developed for dealing with issues and challenges facing professional football player personnel were adopted by the entire NFL in 1992. The NFL also adopted the Minority Coaches Internship and Outreach Program that he developed with Coach Bill Walsh at the San Francisco Forty Niners in 1986. He has written scores of articles and four books: The Struggle That Must Be, Sociology of Sports, Black Students, and The Revolt of the Black Athlete.    About the host    The Very Rev. Dr. Malcolm Clemens Young is the dean of Grace Cathedral. He is the author of The Spiritual Journal of Henry David Thoreau and The Invisible Hand in Wilderness: Economics, Ecology, and God, and is a regular contributor on religion to the Huffington Post and San Francisco Examiner.      About The Forum   The Forum is a series of stimulating conversations about faith and ethics in relation to the important issues of our day.

This is a re-release of our interview with Proffessor Jules Boykoff, originally published within GA Poscast EP01. The Olympics are no doubt an iconic sports staple and whether watching gymnasts tumble across an arena or skiers flying down the slopes, chances are you've watched—and probably cheered for—an Olympic event. Professor Jules Boykoff joins Noah Hoffman to break down the history of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and share the impact of some remarkable highs and lows of the modern Olympic games.       In this episode, we talk about… Pierre Coubertin's vision and who he wanted to participate in the Olympics  How athletes fit into the Olympic story throughout history Peter O'Connor's activism at the 1906 Olympics Alice Milliat's alternative Olympics for women  The lasting influence of John Carlos, Tommie Smith and the Olympic Project for Human Rights in 1968  How the IOC leverages sanctions against athletes in present day IOC's governance structure and accountability  4 Trends of Olympic host cities: high spending, militarization, displacement and eviction, greenwashing  How the United Nations addresses the democracy deficit of the IOC The state of exception the IOC thrives on vs. state of emergency in Japan for upcoming summer games   Memorable Quotes: “All to often, those stories of fighting back on the part of principled athletes who weren't happy with the way the Olympics were being organized, get shuffled under the historical rug….Athletes have been standing up to those in power...and standing up for their freedoms and their political beliefs.”   “Athletes have a tremendous amount of leverage if they act in unison, if they act in concert, and if they have a good plan going in.”   Guest Bio:  Jules Boykoff writes on a range of subjects, including political activism, the Olympic Games, and climate change. Boykoff holds a Ph.D. in political science from American University. He currently teaches political science at Pacific University in Oregon.

With COVID restrictions in place, the cheering section at this year's Olympics may be a little quieter than usual. Still, the pomp and circumstance are still on display in Tokyo, as the world's greatest athletes come together to compete. But the global stage isn't just a chance to display athletic feats, it's also an opportunity for some athletes to make a statement. Several women's soccer teams, including the US team, have taken a knee before matches. And before the Olympics started, American hammer thrower Gwen Berry turned from the flag after winning third place during the Olympic trials. Berry and other activist-athletes other stand on the shoulders of people like sprinter Wyomia Tyus. In 1968, Tyus showed up ready to the Mexico City Olympics ready win. But 1968 wasn't just about the games – it was a time of widespread protest, for Black Americans in particular. So Tyus used her stage to run in solidarity with other Black athletes. Dr. Amira Rose Davis, co-host of the feminist sports podcast Burn It All Down explains why Tyus ultimately got overshadowed, in part because she was a Black woman; and because it was the same year as one of the biggest moments in sports history: when John Carlos and Tommie Smith raised their fists in the air after winning medals in the men's 200-meter race. Tyus says that she didn't mind Carlos and Smith getting most of the attention that year. She understands her legacy and is excited to see Black women like Berry continuing to build on the tradition of sports activism. For a transcript, please visit https://www.msnbc.com/intoamerica. Thoughts?

The Olympics are no doubt an iconic sports staple and whether watching gymnasts tumble across an arena or skiers flying down the slopes, chances are you've watched—and probably cheered for—an Olympic event. Professor Jules Boykoff joins Noah Hoffman to break down the history of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and share the impact of some remarkable highs and lows of the modern Olympic games. In this episode, we talk about… Pierre Coubertin's vision and who he wanted to participate in the Olympics How athletes fit into the Olympic story throughout history Peter O'Connor's activism at the 1906 Olympics Alice Milliat's alternative Olympics for women The lasting influence of John Carlos, Tommie Smith and the Olympic Project for Human Rights in 1968 How the IOC leverages sanctions against athletes in present day IOC's governance structure and accountability 4 Trends of Olympic host cities: high spending, militarization, displacement and eviction, greenwashing How the United Nations addresses the democracy deficit of the IOC The state of exception the IOC thrives on vs. state of emergency in Japan for upcoming summer games Memorable Quotes: “All to often, those stories of fighting back on the part of principled athletes who weren't happy with the way the Olympics were being organized, get shuffled under the historical rug….Athletes have been standing up to those in power...and standing up for their freedoms and their political beliefs.” “Athletes have a tremendous amount of leverage if they act in unison, if they act in concert, and if they have a good plan going in.” Guest Bio: Jules Boykoff writes on a range of subjects, including political activism, the Olympic Games, and climate change. Boykoff holds a Ph.D. in political science from American University. He currently teaches political science at Pacific University in Oregon. He is the author of four books on the Olympics—NOlympians: Inside the Fight Against Capitalist Mega-Sports in Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Beyond (Fernwood, 2020), Power Games: A Political History of the Olympics (Verso, 2016), Activism and the Olympics: Dissent at the Games in Vancouver and London (Rutgers University Press, 2014), and Celebration Capitalism and the Olympic Games (Routledge, 2013).

How have social justice movements in sports evolved from John Carlos to Mohammad Ali to Colin Kaepernick and today's athletes? Why are players, teams and leagues so divided on how to integrate social justice issues into sports?  Is social protest in sports an effective and sustainable way to generate change?  The upcoming season of Here's the Problem podcast sifts through these questions by examining the history of protest in sports and the influence of government and business and generates ideas about the propensity for change.

The field of sprinters that lined up for the 200m at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City were the greatest there had ever been. Two Americans and an Australian took the medal places. There was mild surprise that the Australian had placed in silver as he wasn't a favourite and started characteristically slow before blasting away his opponents in the final few metres. However, the running wasn't the focus by the time the athletes were stood on the podium. The photograph of John Carlos, Tommie Smith and Peter Norman has become the most iconic image of the modern Olympics. This is the story of how a boy from Coburg, Melbourne became caught up in a storm for racial justice in the USA and Australia. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

THE DIRTY 30!  Episode XXX!  In this unusually family-friendly ep we have our second epic interview in as many weeks, but this time it's with the future captain of industry; he who will inherit the earth:  A 9 YEAR OLD BOY, a student, who is an only child, with divorced parents, giving us his take on Melbourne's endless LOCKDOWN GULAG and how 5% of his life has been spent.  You might be surprised...   Since BEES are the barometer of WTF is going on with the planet, it's time to watch the barometric pressure rise as Honey Bees make way smarter decisions than you, have threesomes and bee orgies, and make decisive action on exactly where they want to go out and party and eat---just like you!   Japan is a conundrum:  They bring us grotesquely bad humans like the face that sank 1000 ships, Mazie Hirono, who probably sank The Arizona just by looking at it in Pearl Harbour.  But they also bring us great culture, food, and especially epic clothing and superstars like Junya Watanabe and my long-time fave Commes de Garcons.... in case you wondered why I look especially epic this week in WHAT YOUR PODCASTER IS WEARING.  They also (Japan) make epic whisky as you know, but this week I'm drinking the best SCOTCH WHISKY on the planet, and we'll open a flagon together.  Ever since Efrem Zimbalist, Jr died and took all the good agents with him (other than the ones in SILENCE OF THE LAMBS) there's been a lot of reason to not trust the FBI, especially since they conspired with the CIA to spy on the Republican election campaign in 2016 when weaponized by the dark witch and Barry.  But Clint Eastwood's latest movie shows how they can really fuck up your life if they suspect you of something you never did if they need a victim and you fit the profile.  There's nothing like a good sex trafficking series to relax the family and The Vow is the hottest brand in town.  Check out a local Aussie film from a few years ago that no one saw but is worth hunting down about the white Aussie guy on the podium at Mexico City with Black Power Gloved Tommy Smith and John Carlos.  Come watch with me... The heavy MARS energy and NEPTUNE impulses in our charts this week has put extreme psychic visions and ridiculous comfort food in our lives.  I'm a takin' you to Harlem to pig out on WAFFLES and FRIEND CHICKEN at Silvia's Soul Kitchen and you will thank me! Plus all your regular faves and make sure the whole family listens to this one..or else. :) #MarieBrenner #ClintEastwood #SamRockwell #uesquebach #Whisky #Scotch #KentAlexander #kevinSalwen #RichardJewell #TheVow #KeithRaniere #SylviasSoulFood #Mars #Neptune #Salute #DavidRedman #instinctEntertainment #RogerNorman #Prada #Acne #SylviaWoods #commesDeGarcon #junyawatanabe #mazieHirono #CoreyBooker #AmyConeyBryant #ACB #SupremeCourt #DanielAndrews #Lockdown #Bees #CIA #FBI #DanBongino #monsterDome #DavidLittlejohn #BruceLee #BeWaterMyFriend #shannonLee #EnterTheDragon #ChelseaCook #TheConversation   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Photo by: John Nacion/STAR MAX/IPx 2020 10/5/20 A view of Regal Cinema in Times Square, New York City on October 5, 2020.
