Senior ESPN writer Bryant showcases why he is one of the most talented writers of this generation in thoughtful essays that examine Colin Kaepernick’s protests against police brutality, the militarization of sports, and the player-owner relationship. Readers familiar with Bryant’s work will appreciate his in-depth analysis and examination of issues he’s discussed on air. Bryant’s latest book focuses on issues today; his 2018 book, The Heritage, considers the history of the athlete-activist and how society has arrived at its current position on activism.
VERDICT Highly recommended: Bryant is a masterful writer and a voice of this generation. His passion and analysis on important topics is unparalleled.
