Black Sweat: Women in Sports ft. Nneka Ogwumike Go Off, Sis

    • Society & Culture

Whether, it’s Serena with the left, Simone with the flip or Sha’Carri with the swift, Black women continue to put in the work within sports and the culture. Flowers are far overdue and the list continues to grow as Black women put in both mental and physical sweat, equity and labor within the sports industry. On this episode, we're shedding light on our women in sports and the problematic concerns around pay, player treatment and personal style despite their dedication to the craft. Our special guest is the passionate, smart and talented Nigerian-American WNBA Player of the LA Sparks and President of the WNBPA, Nneka Ogwumike. She shares her long career journey, how a “little” advocacy goes a long way and the effects of what happens when you give women space to use their voices in the sports industry.
