Dr. Shaun M. Anderson is an internationally recognized scholar, proud HBCU graduate, and award-winning professor at Loyola Marymount University. As a sought-after expert regarding sport and social issues, he has worked with recognized organizations such as MLB, PBS, ADL, Nike, ESPN, and lectured at several universities.
His forthcoming book, The Black Athlete Revolt: The Sport Justice Movement in the Age of #BlackLivesMatter (Rowman and Littlefield, 2023) examines the revitalization of athlete activism since the BLM movement began, delving into the ways athletes have shifted their activism from protest to conversations on policy reform.

This event will be 75 minutes of an interactive featured talk with Q&A.
