This is an open discussion you do not want to miss. Join us as we look at what it is like to be Black in the sports industry. No question will go unanswered as we will not hold anything back as we dig deep into the challenges many have experienced in their careers. From discrimination to uplifting fellow Blacks in sports, our conversation will give insights into the skills and tools needed to navigate the sports industry and touch on the hot topics driving the conversations affecting people of color in and around the world of sports.
