If You've Got a Little Extra Time...

While watching C-SPAN today I stumbled upon a familiar name on the schedule. Adonal Foyle was going to be on Q & A. I immediately recognized him as a player from the Golden State Warriors, but what I didn’t recognize was how interesting a person he is. Adonal is from the Caribbean and is completely different from the general stereotype of an NBA player, but that’s obvious since he’s being interviewed on C-Span. In the interview he touched on his path from the Caribbean to the NBA, his foundation Democracy Matters, basic campaign finance issues, and political apathy among young people. If you’ve got a little extra time the interview is worth watching. The link to see it can be found here, also Adonal has his own website which includes poety and a reading list.
