As some athletes kneel for the national anthem to protest racial injustice, and others decline to visit the White House after championships, journalist Howard Bryant discusses the history of social protest among African-American athletes. His new book, 'The Heritage,' traces the tradition back to Jackie Robinson, Muhammad Ali, and others. Also, Kevin Whitehead reviews a new album by pianist Shamie Royston.
