Can’t Eat A Medal: Black Women Athletes Under Jim Crow

This week we speak to Professor Amira Rose Davis about her research on one of the most hidden aspects of sports history, black women before Title IX. 

Also we’ve got some ‘Choice Words’ about the importance of Becky Hammon’s coaching candidacy with the Milwaukee Bucks. Then, we have a very timely Just ‘Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Your Ass Down’ Awards for the NFL Players Association and a soccer club in Jerusalem. Finally, we have a hip-hop themed Kaepernick Watch!
