Michael Bennett Shares His Thoughts on ESPN’s ‘Dear Black Athlete’

The Bennett Foundation

In a pre-taped segment, Michael Bennett addresses the current state of the relationship between police and the black community. In the address, he distinguishes against policing and serving, and how critical it is that officers get involved in the community.

“Serving is showing up to community events…It’s just about being human beings at the end of the day. I think serving is the first thing we got to do – to serve the community.”

His message was featured on Dear Black Athlete, a series of conversations featuring prominent African-American athletes, civic leaders, and community leaders hosted by The Undefeated on ESPN. The special aired Sunday Night at 5 p.m.
