Jim Brown

Nearly 50 years after the iconic Hall of Famer Jim Brown retired he is still considered by many to be the greatest football player ever. In addition to achieving athletic immortality, Mr. Brown was a civil rights activist while an active player. Among other things, he very publicly supported Muhammad Ali’s decision to refuse military induction. His post-football activism is hi-lited by Amer-I-can, which is a program he created, specifically to help curb gang violence and inspire positive change. Jim Brown is a businessman and a pioneering African-American actor. Today he is a special advisor to the Cleveland Browns and one of the most respected voices in football.
