Beyonce made a surprise appearance at Tuesday night’s Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Awards.
She presented the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award to quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Sports Illustrated honors an athlete who uses their platform to promote change. Lonnie Ali told the audience, (quote) "Like Muhammad, Colin is a man who stands on his convictions with confidence and courage, undaunted by the personal sacrifices he has had to make to have his message heard.”
Colin Kaepernick has been at the center of an NFL controversy. He's the first player to kneel during the national anthem and started a movement for social justice. This season, hundreds of players followed his lead. (Billboard)
