Check out this intriguing lecture by Lori M. Martin, an Associate Professor at LSU’s Department of Sociology.
Top-tier college sports are extremely profitable. Despite the billions of dollars involved in this industry, none winds up in the hands of the athletes. The controversies surrounding whether colleges and universities should pay athletes to compete on these educational institutions' behalf is longstanding and coincides with the rise of the African-American athlete.
Pay to Play takes a hard look at historical and contemporary efforts to control sports participation and compensation for African-American athletes in amateur sports in general, and in big-time college sports programs, in particular.
As always, doors open at 5 p.m. for free food and networking, and the talk will start at 6 p.m.
Remember, people of all ages are welcome, so please spread the word and join us for a fun and informative night.
