On a special episode of Sport Matters, host and CEO of Global Sport Institute Kenneth L. Shropshire is joined by Scott N. Brooks, Director of Research at Global Sport Institute as well as Ilhaam Groenewald, Chief Director of Maties Sports at Stellenbosch University, S. Africa to revisit Ken's book, In Black and White: Race and Sports in America, since it was first published 25 years ago.

The three discuss the similarities and differences of what racial equity in sports leadership looks like in South Africa versus the United States, the lessons learned over the past 25 years, and Ken's thoughts on whether mandating change through the legal system is still the path forward for progress.
