Has This Happened Before? 6 Things to Know About the History Behind NFL Protests
With more than 200 NFL players choosing to sit or kneel while the national anthem played before football games over this past weekend — largely in response to President Trump’s continued criticism of athletes participating in such demonstrations — it’s worth remembering that this movement didn’t just begin last year with former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel in order to make a statement about how the country is not practicing what it preaches. In fact, this week’s protests are simply the latest in a long history of athletes making public statements in the na...

Victoria and Abdul Author on the Movie ’s Unlikely Story: ‘It Sounds Like a Fantasy’
The first time Shrabani Basu heard of Abdul Karim, she was carrying out research for a book about the history of curry in the late 1990s. A few years later, while on holiday with her family, she came across a painting of Karim in Osborne House, a former private home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on the U.K.’s Isle of Wight. Basu was immediately struck by the fact that Karim — whom she thought was a servant — had been painted “beautifully, in red and gold,” with a book in his hand. “I knew that Abdul Karim had come from India to England to serve Queen Victoria in 1887, but the portr...
