The Twin Pandemics And How They Intersect With Sports

Aug 12, 2020

We at Going Deep had to take some time off due to the pandemic, but we're back with a new show in a newly-expanded time slot.  The twin pandemics affecting the U.S. - racial injustice and the coronavirus - intersect with sports in so many ways.  The Shoops examined that in an op-ed for the News & Observer this summer.  In this episode, John and Marcia discuss those intersections with Dr. Deb Stroman, a professor at UNC Chapel Hill and former college basketball player at the University of Virginia.  She wrote a piece for Medium called "The Ultimate Guide to Selecting an Historically White College and University for the Elite Black Athlete."
