I can talk about specifically about the subject matter of any of my books; about human rights in sport; or give a detailed workshop about how to make history come alive through the printed page.
Human Rights in sport with examples from my 2001 Gemini-nominated CBC TV documentary about the history of racism in hockey and the crusade to enshrine black superstar Herb Carnegie into the Hockey Hall of Fame; and my 2000 book about Muhammad Ali’s battle with the US government over his opposition to the Vietnam War.
