Top Experts Address Race Issues in College Sports
The Drake Group, an activist group, whose mission is to reform collegiate athletics, will host a webinar on January 13, from 2-3:30 pm (EST), that addresses “Racial Exploitation in College Sports: a Continuing Disgrace.”
Intercollegiate athletics, especially at its highest levels, exploits people of color. In a recently released major report, The Drake Group examined the many ways that Black and brown college athletes are used for their talent, denied opportunities to excel in the classroom, and are excluded from leadership positions in college sports administration and coaching. The panelists in this webinar will speak on these concerns as they’ve impacted their own experiences in college sports and suggest solutions to address racial exploitation in college sport, including congressional action.
