College of Education and Human Development Professor David K. Wiggins has focused much of his research on the interconnection among race, sport, and American culture. Dr. Wiggins’s most recent book, DC Sports: The Nation’s Capital at Play has met with wide acclaim. He also serves as a consultant to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.


Together with Mark R. Ginsberg, Dean of the College of Education and Human Development, all alumni, faculty, students, colleagues, and friends are invited to a lively and thought-provoking conversation that will focus on the history and ethical issues surrounding African American participation in sport.

A reception will follow.
