Black Bodies in Leadership: Journey of the Black Quarterback

Black Bodies in Leadership: The Journey of the Black Quarterback

Throughout the history of the sport, black bodies have been seen as fast, strong and powerful on the football field. However, there have long been questions associated with African Americans in leadership positions on the field of play. Today, nearly 70% of the players in the NFL are African American, yet very few have led their team as quarterbacks.

Inspired by these factors, our panel of former and current quarterbacks will explore the history of those that have held the position, the status of black men represented in leadership today, and the best path for success going forward.

Join us starting at 6:00 p.m. for an inspiring event moderated by Bill Rhoden, award-winning sports writer and visiting professor at Arizona State University. Quarterback panelists include:

  • Marlin Briscoe
  • Dwayne Haskins
  • Jayden Daniels
  • James "Shack" Harris
  • Warren Moon
  • Doug Williams
  • More TBA!
