Event description: 

Before Kaepernick, there was rising basketball star Abdul-Rauf. More than two decades after leaving the NBA for his stand against racial injustice and oppression, he continues to teach the necessity of protest. Join us for this special conversation about faith, sports, and the courage to speak out. Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf is the 2023 Dr. Betty Shabazz and Malcolm X Memorial Lecturer.
The event is organized by Dwight Hall at Yale’s Muslim Leadership Lab, with the Yale Chaplain’s Office and the Yale Divinity School Office of Diversity Equity Inclusion & Belonging.
