In this public release of a Patreon bonus episode originally released in January 2020, Jaye tells the story of the 1969 University of Wyoming Cowboys football team. Fourteen African-American players on the team were dismissed by their head coach in the middle of the 1969 season for asking permission to protest. How is the Black 14 incident, and the aftermath, instructive for understanding social protest by athletes today?
