Let's Talk About... Supporting Your Black Athletes
Jul 17, 2020 Season 1 Episode 13
Mom Of All Capes

Athletes bring their unique selves to the game no matter what level of play. But sometimes black athletes feel as if they must mute themselves or withhold a part of who they are in order to fit in on their team. During this time we challenge coaches (and parent-spectators) to think about how best to support their black athletes? We met with Janee Hayes, a mom, an entrepreneur, and a former two-sport Division 1 athlete to discuss this and more.
