Sports takes with historical context

I’ve been following these sports historians for quite some time and it’s great to hear them on the same podcast. We live in a hyper-media world and often lose sight of the historical context of many of the sacrifices and events that have occurred for black athletes, it’s nice to be reminded of how current events are shaped by past experiences. Can’t wait to hear more from these two brilliant historians.
