Athletic Department MLK Town Hall

to

Dean Lynn Videka and Associate Professor Robert Ortega are panelists at the athletic department MLK Town Hall. Sociologist and civil rights activist, Dr. Harry Edwards is the keynote speaker. Edwards has a long and storied history of activism focused upon developments at the interface of sport, race, and society. He may be best known as the architect of the Black Power Salute protest by athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City.

This town hall and panel discussion will focus on tangible ways in which we can move from protests to progress and how athletes can best use their platforms to help shape change.
