The Black 14: Sport, Student Protest & Social Justice

Over fifty years ago, fourteen Black football players from the University of Wyoming took a principled stand against racial injustice at great personal cost.

Join us on Monday 23 November at 6pm BST / 11am MT for our online event with original members of ‘The Black 14’, exploring sport, student protest and social justice in the age of #BlackLivesMatter.

The event will include a panel discussion with Dr Jamal Ratchford, Assistant Professor in the Department of History and the Race, Ethnicity, and Migration Studies Program at Colorado College and former Black 14 Wyoming Cowboys, John Griffin, Mel Hamilton and Tony McGee.
