What is it about culture and society that creates an environment in which an athlete is able to excel or fail in his/her respective sport? Which factors, such as racism, discrimination, financial advantage or hardship, propel or hinder an athlete’s achievements? This volume seeks to explore how the world of sports is often a microcosm of the real world and the many ways in which it uniquely reflects cultural and societal issues. Abstracts are welcomed from all disciplines.
Abstract Due Dates: Preference will be given to abstracts received by October 15, 2016 and should be no longer than 300 words. Please also include a brief biographical statement and a CV.

In light of continued violence upon Black and Brown bodies, I am concerned about the physical, emotional, and psychological toll such attacks will have on the collective Black male conscience. In an attempt to soothe a friend's pain I mentioned that survival is part of the Black man's experience in America. We have seen them bounce back higher and stronger throughout the course of history. Many of these historical episodes have however left them absent from the collective. Martyrdom is frequent in Black history, but all men of color cannot be sacrificed so that the collective can enjoy American life. It is also obvious that they must do more than just survive, they must be allowed to thrive and soar.
