Division, segregation, prejudice. How can we end it?
Dr. Gary Sailes educates us on critical race theory, as well as his own personal philosophies and experiences regarding racism on and off the court.
We are all products of our own environment, so how can we use that to our benefit? Prepare for coverage on racial dialogue and the benefits of mentoring in this season, and tackle diversity on and off the field with Dr. Sailes.
