Description
Whether the issues are protest, labor, patriotism, or class division, it is clear that sports are no longer simply fun and games. Rather, they are a hotbed of fractures that define their respective industries and provide allegories for society at large. It is this spirit of sports and societal intersectionality that informs the nine essays--all original--in Full Dissidence . In three parts-- Protest , Belonging , and Corruption ---Bryant writes about what Colin Kaepernick exposed in our culture, the militarization of sports, police propaganda, the corporate assault on civil liberties, the collisions of race and identity, and the kleptocracy that has forced America to ask itself if its beliefs of freedom and democracy are more than just words. We see it in sports, through the player-owner relationship, and we see it more broadly in our national government. Famous, millionaire black athletes, for example, seem powerful. But how powerful are they really when they are not allowed to speak? And when they lose their careers if they do? Additionally, Bryant unpacks how being torn away from the roots of the Black community in order to achieve the myth of "more" or "better" is deeply consequential, especially today. In a time when authoritarianism is creeping into our lives and is being embraced in our politics, advocating for black and brown communities is riskier. Powerful, popular people of color may think they can navigate this terrain with their money and their fame. They cannot. That's never been more clear than now. Perched firmly at the intersection of sports, politics and pop culture, Full Dissidence speaks to the continued influence of sports in the mainstream in a way that is at once brilliant and arresting.
