The Shame of College Sports

The Rudolf G. Schade Lecture: Taylor Branch

Thursday, October 10, 2013
Frick Center, Founders Lounge
7:00 PM

Last year in The Atlantic, Taylor Branch published what the commentator Frank Deford said “may be the most important article ever written about college sports.” The real scandal, says Branch, is the very structure of college sports, wherein athletes generate billions of dollars for big universities while earning nothing for themselves. Branch is the Pulitzer Prize–winning biographer of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and historian of the Civil Rights Movement.
