Lifelines, Not Pipelines: Jesse Jackson & Jackie Keeler

Nov 02, 2016, 09:55 PM

We are honored to speak with Reverend Jesse Jackson about his trip to North Dakota to fight the Dakota access pipeline (DAPL,) giving Jackie Robinson's eulogy, and playing one-on-one against Marvin Gaye. We are equally honored to speak to native American journalist Jackie Keeler about her experiences in North Dakota, its connection to a Native American mascots in sports, and why the DAPL resistance has produced, in her mind, "the most unified native response since Little Big Horn." We also have Choice Words about what politics could look like in the NBA locker room after their greatest fan leaves the White House, the Just Stand Up goes to two Wisconsin players with their eyes on the prize: Bronson Koenig and - again - to Nigel Hayes. | http://rainbowpush.org— | | | email us: | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-428-3343 (EDGE)—music: “I Am Somebody” by DJ Greg Street ( | “Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye (Autograf remix | “Crazy Horse” by John Trudell ( | “We Are the Halluci Nation” by A Tribe Called Red ft.
