Join Mina Denny for the first episode of Clear The Air's new mini-series airing this month only: Black History Matters. In light of it being Black History Month, HN has collaborated with IUSTV on this month-long project to spotlight Black athletes, coaches, and professors around the Bloomington community.
Gary "Doc" Sailes -- author, speaker, and retired associate professor -- joins us for the first episode. Growing up overseas as a military brat, Doc was immersed in much cultural diversity and people of every demographic. He also grew up with a passion for sport, prompting him to consider how race and sport work in conjunction with one another. Whether Doc is teaching a sport and social justice class, giving Black athletes a platform to speak, or writing a book about the Black athlete experience, he has and is creating a safe space for open conversation about these controversies.
