The Dream is Free But The Hustle Is Sold Separately: Promises Broken, Promises Kept-- Black Women Athletes' Status After 50 Years of Title IX.
Colleges and universities must do better centering and normalizing the Black woman experience not just in collegiate athletics, but across all areas of higher education, and they should start by acknowledging that Black women don't benefit from Title IX the same way their white peers do. In 2019, the NCAA reported that nearly 50,000 of its student-athletes were women. Only 12% of those athletes were Black women. A 2021 report from The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports found that of the NCAA’s senior woman administrators, 79% are white and 15% are Black.
Join us on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, from 7:00pm - 8:30pm for a panel discussion with former women athletes, coaches and athletic educators that will address their experiences, challenges and concerns about this topic.
