Benjamin Watson is a tight end for the Baltimore Ravens. He was drafted in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots, receiving a Super Bowl ring in his rookie season as well as another in 2007.

In 2010, he signed a three-year deal with the Cleveland Browns reuniting him with former Patriots assistant coach, Eric Mangini. In 2013, he agreed to a three-year contract with the New Orleans Saints and was named team captain for the 2015-2016 season. In his 12th year in the NFL, Watson had a career season where he had a career-best in receptions (74) and yards (825), and tied his career high in touchdowns (six).

Watson is the author of “Under Our Skin: Getting Real About Race – And Getting Free From the Fears and the Frustrations That Divide Us” and “Group Conversation Guide,” to help readers talk honestly about race, bias, and justice.

There will be a short reception, courtesy of Bethel AME from 6 – 6:30 PM.
