It's How You Play the Game: Athletics, Activism and Race

Part of the What's Next? roundtable series
Event Date & Time
| -

The Black Lives Matter athletic activism that followed the killing of George Floyd here in Minneapolis last summer has focused new energy and attention on the role of sports in bringing about social change and racial justice in our community and all across the nation. This conversation will bring together a diverse panel of sports leaders, all with Minnesota ties, to talk about how this is playing out in their particular fields and what they would like to see done differently.
