Nate Boyer and Ibtihaj Muhammad are coming to the LBJ Auditorium on September 18th to lead a discussion on the intersection of social justice and sports.

Enter below for your chance to WIN reserved tickets for this discussion plus a signed copy of Ibtihaj Muhammad's book "Proud".

Ibtihaj Muhammad is a fencer, the first Muslim American woman in hijab to compete for the United States in the Olympic Games and the first female Muslim American to medal at the Olympic Games, winning bronze in the women's sabre team event. Named one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World, she serves as a sports ambassador for the U.S. State Department, co-founded Athletes for Impact and the clothing company Louella, and inspired the first hijabi Barbie in her likeness. 

Nate Boyer is a former active-duty Green Beret, philanthropist and community leader, and a former member of the Texas Longhorns and Seattle Seahawks. Boyer played an unexpected role in one of today's most well-known sports protest controversies. During the 2016 NFL preseason games, Colin Kaepernick, then a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, sat on the bench during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Kaepernick explained his action as a protest against racial injustice. In response to the protest, Boyer published an open letter to Kaepernick. Kaepernick reached out to Boyer, and the two met to discuss their perspectives on the protest. As a result of their discussion, Kaepernick decided to kneel during the National Anthem in an effort to show more respect to current and former military members, while still spotlighting the social issues that led to his protest.
