Sports & Civil Rights: A 50 Year Retrospective


This presentation will consider the ways sports as well as politics and social trends have reflected larger trends in American life as well as influenced American history and the nation we occupy today. Many feel these changes have been positive and others feel they’ve been negative – all of which Professors Andrews will address.

Professor Andrews will participate in a LIVE Q&A immediately following the pre-recorded lecture. A recording will be available to view after the live event concludes but you MUST register to receive the link.
