Exclusive: Jay-Z and The NFL Team Up On Entertainment and Social Justice Partnership

August 13, 2019

 

The NFL and Roc Nation will team up on an entertainment and social justice partnership, according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post.

 

Roc Nation will be apart of the selection process for the Super Bowl along with a number of other events. It is expected that Roc Nation will help boost the NFL's "Inspire Change" program, an initiative that partners with players to fight social injustice, according to ESPN. 

 

Every since the Colin Kapernick protest back in 2016,  the NFL has been receiving backlash in regards to social injustices. Many players then began to take a knee during the national anthem. President Trump criticized the protests, slamming the league's ratings and saying players should be fired or suspended for such protests says CNN. He recommended that the NFL owners should fire anyone who does not cooperate during the national anthem. 

 

Though the NFL and Roc Nation are forming an entertainment and social justice partnership according to Andrew Beaton, “Jay-Z has not spoken to former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick but said he 'absolutely brought this conversation alive’. The NFL and Jay Z have not released an official agreement.
