Sports, Politics, and Patriotism

In the wake of 9/11, displays of patriotism were incorporated into major sporting events, creating new traditions that still exist 17 years later. Sports columnist Howard Bryant, author of “The Heritage: Black Athletes, a Divided America, and the Politics of Patriotism,” and USA Today columnist and CNN and ABC News commentator Christine Brennan discuss how these expressions became embedded in American sports, why they persist almost two decades later and how they complicate the world of sports today.
