Every year the past 5 Years around Columbus Day i have been invited by world renowned Sports Journalist and Soul Brother Kevin Blackistone to be a Guest Speaker in his Sports History Class at the University of Maryland College Park.
Professor Blackstone’s classes are populated with a Healthy mix of young intellectuals from varying World Cultures.
We cover two issues in his class… or rather tie in 2 issues…
The Washington Redskins’ team name and of course… Columbus Day.
The discussions are always great and respectful of the sometimes different view points expressed.
For me, Professor Blackistone’s class is an example of how a conversation on perceived touchy issues, can be organized and facilitated in a way that leaves everyone’s dignity in tact… No matter where you come from. Thank You Brother!
