February 23, 2012 – Hour 1

Olympian and human rights activist John Carlos joins us at 5pm along with Dave Zirin, co-author of The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed the World.  John and fellow Olympic medalist Tommie Smith sparked an international controversy by raising their fists in the black power salute while receiving their medals on the Olympic podium in 1968.  Zirin is the first sportswriter in the 150-year history of The Nation magazine and the host of the Edge of Sports show on XM-Sirius radio.
