The Super Bowl: How America’s Top Sports Event was created in the Aftermath of the AFL All Star Game Boycott of Jim Crow in New Orleans in 1965 The Super Bowl is much more than a football game, and as you might know, it is the only sports event that impacts every community in the United States. But, did you know that the Super Bowl rose out of the civil rights movement, specifically the African American boycott of the AFL All Star Game in New Orleans? Evan Weiner, a veteran sports broadcaster will take us on a journey from the birth of the Super Bowl to talk about the halftime shows and everything in between, including how the famed football game got its name. Evan is a speaker and author with a radio and TV background. He speaks on many topics and has spoken globally. In 2007, the Department of State sent him to talk to foreign nationals at the George Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas to speak about the politics of sports business in America. Presented on Zoom. Registration required.
