John Feinstein – Famous Sports Writer Tackles Racism in New Book
John Feinstein, one of the most celebrated sports writers in modern history and author of “A Season on the Brink,” joins The Florida Keys Weekly Podcast to discuss his most recent book, “Raise a Fist, Take a Knee.” Feinstein, who eloquently and unapologetically examines racial inequality in sports, interviewed dozens of the most recognized coaches and players to shed a timely light on the outdated ideologies that continue to exist. In addition, he reflects on his own relationships with Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski and the late, legendary John Thompson of the Georgetown Hoyas, who was the first African-American head coach to win a college basketball national championship. Feinstein is the author of 44 books and has worked as a columnist for Sporting News, Golf Digest and the Washington Post. He also has provided commentary for The Jim Rome Show, The Golf Channel and many other major media outlets.
