Sharing more from our coverage at Super Bowl LIV in Miami, we speak with New York Jets running back Ty Montgomery (1:43), Minnesota Vikings defensive back Trae Waynes (14:22) and Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Jessie Bates III (24:09). They each share stories about the complexities of their identities, the way they use their platforms to create change and their experience addressing issues of race on the field, in the locker room and beyond the game. Ty talks about his work supporting foster children and shares how Aaron Rogers played an important role in how the Green Bay Packers responded to the movement of on-field player protests for social injustice and the criticism that athletes faced for those actions. Trae talks about his passions for Animal Rights and Civic Engagement, and shares a personal experience with racial profiling. Jessie talks about his biracial identity and how he uses his platform to empower youth and support single moms.
