In the Shadow of Obscurity; Toiling in a Reluctant Society

June 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$25 – $225

A 6-week Online Course on Social Justice and Racism in America as seen through the prism of Professional Sports, taught by Pete Elman with Arif Khatib

 In the Shadow of Obscurity; Toiling in a Reluctant Society is a class culled from a timely new book of the same title. The book tells the story of the journey, struggles and achievements of a special group of unheralded athletes of color. These brave trailblazers include men and women whose skills and exploits contributed to an array of individual and team sports such as boxing, track and field, golf, diving, auto racing, bicycle racing, judo, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, and baseball, as well as two journalists who championed their causes. The collection of 27 compelling stories includes articles written by a stellar group of authors, scholars, historians, and journalists – some of them local – from the field of sports.

With the theme of social justice and racism in America as seen through the prism of professional sports, each week concentrates on one subject/chapter from the book. Instructor, Pete Elman, utilizes a combination of lecture, slide show and interactive discussion focusing on the lives, careers and stories of those who overcame racial prejudice to succeed.
