40 Million Dollar Slaves

Craig Robinson
I’m probably going to miss this tonight, but it sounds great:

The Brown University Department of Athletics and the Third World Center will host a panel discussion to discuss, “Reflections on Race and Sport In America,” on Monday, April 14, 2008 at Andrews Dining Hall, located on the Brown campus, beginning at 7:00 p.m.  Headlining the panel is New York Times columnist William Rhoden, author of “Forty Million Dollar Slaves.” The panel discussion on “Race and Sport In America” is free and open to the Brown community and general public.

Jim Campbell, Brown professor of Africana Studies and American Studies, will moderate a panel discussion that will attempt to navigate the ever-changing role race plays in professional and amateur sports in America.  Joining Rhoden on the panel will be Craig Robinson, the head men’s basketball coach at Brown and brother-in-law of Presidential hopeful Barak Obama, and Nicole Burns, a junior track & field standout at Brown.
