The Kaepernick Effect,

Rice University, Houston, Texas, United States Rice University, Houston, Texas, United States

  • About the event

    This event is a panel centered around the effectiveness, capacity, and prevalence of protest in sport. Broadly, this project seeks to develop the current dichotomy that exists in the realm of protest in sport and expand upon additional dialogues that could potentially link contrary views beneath one united cause. Our  panel will feature a variety of athletes and sporting professionals including professional Houston Texans football player, Christian Covington. The purpose of this event is to investigate the creation of multiple perspectives that may surround divisive social problems. By using Colin Kaepernick as a case study, we aim to investigate the adoption or rejection of his stance and his deliberate action of protest during the American national anthem. We hope to provide a safe environment that encourages conversation and leads to action.
