HBCU Sports’ Kendrick Marshall talks to FAMU assistant coach James Spady about the unique experience he faced as the head coach at Alabama A&M in 2017 when some of his players kneeled in protest before the start of the Magic City Classic football game at Legion Field in Birmingham, AL.

As we witness world-wide protest rallies calling for an end to racism in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, Spady talks about how he’s optimistic that the energetic actions of young people will spur the substantive changes so many have sought before them.

Spady also shares his personal experiences as the father of black sons, racial profiling, and the conversations he’s had with his athletics, hoping they will stay alive after confrontations with law enforcement.
