7:00 PM - SAT 4/28
In 1984, the Chicago Bulls recruited an unassuming young basketball player named Michael Jordan. At the time, his place in the annals of NBA history was by no means assured—but then, he lent his name to a pair of sneakers by Nike: the now-iconic Air Jordan 1. Upon release, the shoe simultaneously scandalized the league and made its namesake a hero. Through interviews with the likes of Spike Lee, Jason Sudeikis, and Jordan himself, Unbanned: The Legend of AJ1 examines the dawn of the sneaker craze and how has intersected with music, sports, celebrity, and sociopolitical issues.
