Social Issues In Sports

Started May 31, 2023

Abstract or project description

King is going to be writing a research paper on social issues in sports. We are going to do a deep dive on how key social issues have manifested themselves within sports over the last 10 years including racism, wage gap, growing cost of attendance and mental health awareness. For each of these topics we will bring up case studies, new articles and research papers to help provide context and examples of these issues. While we know the solution is not easy we will look to talk about steps that can be taken to solve some of these issues.
