Steelers teach us about diversity

Before speaking at Comcast’s Diversity and Inclusion Council event at the Roberto Clemente Museum, they asked me to talk a little about why diversity matters. My book The Color of Sundays tracks the racial integration of the National Football League through the Civil Rights Era, and I make the case that the team’s colorblind approach to player scouting resulted in its championship successes.

I am available for more speaking opportunities like this, with details here.

Many thanks to Josephine Posti at Comcast for inviting me to be part of this important discussion!
