UW-Green Bay Prof. James Coates, Education, hosted the event.
The panelists discussed a variety of topics, including sports and African-American culture; personal role models; balancing athletics and education; and whether there is an overemphasis on athletics in the African-American community. The event was held in the Christie Theatre of the University Union.
