Voices from the Black Community at PCA


Black Lives Matter. Sports has the intrinsic power to transform lives and unify communities. When sports are done right, they cannot fix anti-Black racism alone, but the positive and inclusive actions of coaches, parents, student-athletes, organizational and school leaders throughout the country can start to reverse an age-old trend of systemic racism.

In our Commitment to Change, we promised to amplify voices from the Black community at PCA sharing how sports has impacted their lives.
