In , a foot statue depicting the Mexico City protest was unveiled at San Jose State , their alma mater. The most direct connection between Smith and Carlos and Kaepernick is Harry Edwards, a sociologist who was a mentor to Smith and Carlos at San Jose State in and has been a longtime adviser to the San Francisco 49ers, whom Kaepernick led to the Super Bowl during the season. Smith and Carlos and Kaepernick were empowered by separate but broad-based social movements, the civil rights movement of the s and the Black Lives Matter movement of today.
All three athletes brilliantly understood the capacity of silent gestures conveyed through the rituals of sport, said Douglas Hartmann, chairman of the sociology department at the University of Minnesota. There are differences, too, between the protests then and now.
Kaepernick has the corporate backing of Nike, the reach of social media, public support from white athletes and coaches and belongs to a generation of athletes more broadly willing to use their platforms to address social issues, Hartmann said.
