Billie Jean King on athlete activism: ‘Our job is to lead’

Billie Jean King, one of the most renowned and beloved athletes of our time, made her mark on the court as the top women’s tennis player in the world. Off the court, she continues her advocacy for equality. King joins Jeffrey Brown for a conversation at the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Open.

Hmm - sounds alot like a certain NFL player Nike is featuring in their latest ad campaign.

Gino Fisanotti, Nike's vice president of brand for North America, explained to Rovell how Kaepernick's social advocacy helped Nike identify him as a prime candidate for the campaign. "We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward,"Fisanotti said. "We wanted to energize its meaning and introduce 'Just Do It' to a new generation of athletes."
