Football takes the spotlight once again on Thursday, September 28 with Prime-Time Champions: An Evening with NBC Sunday Night Football moderated by Savannah Guthrie, Co-anchor of TODAY and NBC News Chief Legal Correspondent; and featuring NBC Sports’ prominent commentators and producers for an in-depth discussion on the evolution of the show and the game on everyone’s mind that weekend. The sports momentum continues into Hispanic Heritage Month with A Paley Tribute to Roberto Clemente: The Legend of #21. The Paley Center for Media worked with Major League Baseball, the Roberto Clemente Foundation, and expert collector Paul Kutch, to bring together personal and cultural artifacts that help tell the story of the charismatic Roberto Clemente, one of the best right fielders who ever lived. Fifty years ago, Clemente was the first Latin American baseball player inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and the Paley exhibit opens on September 15, the same day that the MLB celebrates Clemente’s life and legacy with Roberto Clemente Day. The fall season at The Paley Museum continues with two PaleyImpact events exploring Media’s Role in Combating Antisemitism. The first, Fighting Antisemitism Through Tech, will take place on Tuesday, September 19, and features distinguished experts representing the fields of tech, media, education, and the historical preservation of the Holocaust discussing the innovative ways AI, Gaming, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality are becoming significant tools in the fight against antisemitism. On Wednesday, October 25, a highly anticipated special screening of David Baddiel: Jews Don’t Count will be hosted at The Paley Museum followed by a conversation with the renowned writer and special guests featured in the documentary. In this provocative film adaptation of his bestselling book of the same title, British comedian and writer David Baddiel explores the spread of unchecked antisemitism and why he believes Jews are too often overlooked in current discussions and policies addressing racism.
