EP 8 - BRENDON AYANBADEJO
In this episode we talk with Brendon Ayanbadejo, Super Bowl Champ, 3 time Pro Bowler and former Baltimore Raven. As an NFL player, Brendon wasted no time in establishing himself as a leader in the locker room, through his role as Team Captain and NFL Players Union representative yet his tenacity off the field possibly eclipses his goals on the gridiron. On the SOCIAL STUDIES SHOW we discuss the NFL and NBA restarts in times of COVID. How he is working towards creating generational wealth for his family and his employees after life on the field. Sharing examples of how capitalism can have a conscience. We discuss his childhood and how being part of an interracial family was a catalyst for working in civil rights. How his path of growth led to fighting for equality from the steps of the Supreme Court to being a part of President Obama’s advisory team on LGBTQ issues.
