The year 2020 has been full of non-stop activism when it comes to our leaders in the sports world.
Many athletes have unapologetically rejected the notion of “sticking to sports” and have been using their platforms to not only speak out on the litany of issues that came attached to the hip of the new decade, but to also inform the world around them.
Blazers guard CJ McCollum is one of many players who has been actively utilizing his platform.
After undergoing surgery to repair a vertebral fracture, McCollum decided to hone in on his journalistic passion by starting his very own show, “ReMaking America.”
The first episode features Sixers forward Tobias Harris and Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell. The three are rivals on the court, but they teamed up together to have a sit down with California senator and vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.
The first episode of “ReMaking America” discusses a slew of topics ranging from voting, police brutality, education reform, and the importance of investment in underserved communities.
