On the Sidelines Lecture: The Game of the Century - A Clash of Perspectives On and Off the Gridiron


Location: Eck Center Auditorium

The year 1966 will long be remembered as one of protest and division over the escalating War in Vietnam and the rise of the black power movement. It will also be remembered for a highly-anticipated football game that ended in a controversy that Notre Dame and Michigan State fans still discuss. Senior Associate Athletics Director John Heisler will offer history and highlights of the epic game, while Clark Power, professor in the Program of Liberal Studies and director of Play Like a Champion Today, will explore how controversy in sports, as well as politics, can become a catalyst leading to ethical insight and mutual understanding.

This event is free and open to the public.
