In this unit, we will examine the ramifications of black athlete identity and why activism’s historical and contemporary emergence was inevitable. Athlete activism is not new.Historically, there were sports figures who were outspoken figures in the effort to change the racial and social landscape for people of color and women in the United States.There were many athlete activists in our history but the more prominent athletes we will examine are Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, Paul Robeson, Jim Brown, Arthur Ashe, Curt Flood, Jackie Robinson, George Taliaferro, John Carlos, Tommie Smith, Venus Williams.Their influence before, during and after the period of integration in American sport was unprecedented so speaking out was considered dangerous and could be life threatening.I will allow you to write about anyone other than the ones I mentioned here but please know that these individuals will be on your midterm exam.
Your assignment this week is to examine the lives of one of these individuals (or an athlete of your choice) and write a 500 word (two pages) essay on them.The first section of your paper should introduce the athlete and their athletic accomplishments.The second section of your paper should focus on their social activism.The final section of your paper should focus on you, that is, what is your reaction to their life journey.This is a paper and not a Discussion assignment so you do not have to respond to your classmates/ responses.
