Do we have an episode for you! The Play it Forward Podcast’s Season 2 opener is an inspiring conversation with the former Vice President & Managing Director of NBA Africa, and the President of the Basketball Africa League, Mr. Amadou Gallo Fall. He speaks to Chinny and Emmett, hosts of the sport and social justice podcast, in-depth on the power of sport, in this particular case basketball, to transform people’s lives for the better. Through his story, we hear how basketball transformed his life, and how that motivated him to build Sport for Education and Economic Development (SEEDs), and how he is leveraging his network and contacts to build a better future for the young people of Africa. We also get to hear his answer to, “What message would you put on a billboard for millions of people to see?” We hope you leave today’s episode of the Play it Forward podcast feeling as energized and motivated to build a better, more peaceful and equitable world, as we did!
