Research on the Necessity of Black Student-Athlete Support Groups
Academic Ability is Underestimated
The phrase 'student-athlete' implies that the "student" is prioritized. This is not the case for many Black football and basketball players whose sports are heavily demanding. In addition, many Black athletes cannot take full advantage of university-level education.
The Black Student Athlete Organizations Webinar was hosted by CADSA during Summer 2020 to provide an informational session for student-athletes around the country looking to start their own groups on campus. The event had over 60 participants, and athletes from DI-DIII colleges shared their insights and perspectives about the collective activist movement.
