Lunch and Learn: Defining America’s Relationship with Sports

Professor Sandy Alspach will be hosting a Lunch and Learn on Thursday, November 3rd entitled “Defining America’s Relationship with Sports.” During her presentation, Professor Alspach will be discussing the question “Is American sport a microcosm of society, or does American society reflect the values exhibited in our sports?” The case that will be focused on is the recent behavior of football players, initiated by Colin Kaepernick, to refuse to stand for the playing of the National Anthem.
