In this week’s episode of the Double Clutch podcast, we take a break from covering the NBA and the WNBA to speak to Chicago Sky head coach James Wade about the Black Lives Matter international human rights movement.
Huw Hopkins interviews him about growing up as a black man in America, and he shares stories about early encounters with the police.
Wade also discusses what the country needs from its leaders and the challenges of having to be a leader for a WNBA franchise, and helping a group of players, many of whom are black, to get through this tough, emotional period.
Afterwards, we hear from Emmanuel Acho, with a clip from his new series Uncomfortable Conversations With A Black Man.
