Davis Discusses Inequity in Sports

Davis Discusses Inequity in Sports

Dr. Amira Rose Davis, assistant professor of history and African American studies, recently appeared on WBUR’s  Only a Game for a discussion that was livestreamed on YouTube, August 12. Davis joined two other scholars to discuss how athletics, particularly at the collegiate level, historically have been shaped by society’s structural inequities. She also wrote an August 11 editorial in the Washington Post that linked contemporary efforts by NCAA football players to form a players association to the long history of Black athletes using collective action in athletics to effect social change.
