Black History Lacrosse Special
This week’s show is an excerpt from a talk I (Host Fred Opie) delivered at the McDonogh school in Baltimore. School officials invited me to speak to the schools FCA group, a history class, varsity lacrosse teams, and the school’s Sankofa Club (an organization that supports the concerns of the school's African-American students but it's not restricted to black students). The topics you will hear include what's it like to be the first and/or one of the few African Americans and why have African-Americans struggled with food related illnesses. Enjoy some African-American barbershop talk where you learn about my experience from childhood until adulthood and about the strategies I have used to thrive in uncomfortable situations. My tips are helpful for students, parents, teachers, coaches, and high school and college school administrators. It's African-American history month and I thought that this show would be appropriate because it contains lacrosse stories, school stories, and my own oral history. If you been listening to the show for any time, you know I am all about unpacking the lacrosse stories and oral histories of my guess. Finally, my live event calendar for 2019 is filling up fast.
