David Steele, author of, "It Was Always A Choice."

Today, we learn how 50 years before Colin Kaepernick took a knee to protest racial injustice, Oakland's Bill Russell took a stand against Jim Crow. We’ll hear from author David Steele about his latest book, on the long history of activism by athletes in major sports. Then we revisit a San Francisco musical tradition. And, we’ll listen to a reading from Berkeley author Monica Wesolowska. With local music from The Ironsides.
