The Athlete as Specimen

22 Jun

The Athlete as Specimen.

Dr. Harrison’s post concerning race and athletes, an interesting topic to explore with students. She uses LeBron and Gisele’s Vogue cover as a starting point and includes a student perspective that does not see a racial component to the photo. And check out the comments. The “Destroy this Mad Brute” photo can be found online next to the Vogue cover and is an interesting dimension to include in this discussion.
