While their talents are responsible for generating millions of dollars for their colleges and universities, black college athletes often go through college with different academic expectations. This discussion will examine athlete’s perception of college athletics along with the reality of athletes having little to fall back on when dreams of making it to the professional league of their sports are not realized.

The panelists will share their own experiences and knowledge around these issues, and offer wisdom and insight on ways of moving forward, ensuring a stimulating and engaging evening.


Featured Panelists:

Paul Francisco, Vice President, Workforce Development Programs and Global Inclusion, State Street Bank, Former New England Patriots player

Derrick Z. Jackson, Columnist, The Boston Globe

Robyne Johnson, Director, Track and Field and Cross Country, Boston University

Jamalh Prince, Dean of Students, Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School

Lewis Bryant, Director of Multicultural Services, Buckingham Browne and Nichols School (moderator)
