RAISE A FIST, TAKE A KNEE Race and the Illusion of Progress in Modern Sports

by | Read by John Feinstein

Contemporary Culture • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

The venerable sportswriter John Feinstein dives into a topical subject that draws strong opinions and whose tentacles reach across fields and courts: race and sports. Feinstein narrates his own work and has grown into a comfortable style as a narrator with his own cadence. He doesn't imitate anyone except for the drawl of famed basketball coach Lefty Driesell, an imitation that is priceless. This is a meaty topic to be sure, and one Feinstein is up to. His reporting is solid--he did more than 100 interviews for this audiobook--and his narration is comfortable and always respectful of the topic. Those who have any opinion on Colin Kaepernick and/or the hiring (or lack thereof) of minorities in sports will learn a lot from Feinstein's latest.
