CSUF’s Center for Sociocultural Sport and Olympic Research will host its annual on-campus conference March 14, featuring two events open to the public. First, is a keynote by leading race, gender and sport scholar Akilah Carter-Francique. Her globally recognized scholarship centers the experiences of Black women within collegiate sporting and exercising spaces, as well as broader understandings of race within sport and physical culture. Her keynote, “Forged With Purpose: The Olympic Legacy in the Era of DEI,” will be from 2-4 p.m. Immediately following the keynote at 3:30 p.m., CSSOR will host a panel featuring current and former CSUF athletes providing their insights and perspectives around race, diversity and intercollegiate athletics in the 21st century.

Both the talk and panel are open to the public and will take place in Titan Theatre at the Titan Student Union. For more information on the conference, visit the CSSOR website.
