Sports: Leveling the Playing Field
Race and Power
:
Session #9

Games are serious business. From the schoolyard to professional leagues, sports are a ubiquitous presence in our society. Few areas have been as explicit in the popular conversation about race as sports. From ideas around genetic aptitude and ability, to conversations about who should discuss racial politics, sports has often been at the cutting edge of discussion. Professor Brian Lowery talks with Nneka Ogwumike, basketball player for the Los Angeles Sparks and President of the Women's National Basketball Association and with RC Buford, the CEO of Spurs Sports and Entertainment. They explore the role of sport and athletes in advancing the cause of racial equity.
