There’s a pattern of violence in the NFL. Ray Rice. Greg Hardy. Adrian Peterson. Jovan Belcher. Each of these men has assaulted either a woman or child, and in Jovan Belcher’s case, murdered a woman. What happens when the safety of women and children are juxtaposed against the economic interests of one of the most powerful tax-exempt organizations in the world? Join us for a special Black Women in Conversation radio program, sponsored by Black Women's Blueprint, as Farah Tanis, Nikki Patin and Aishah Shahidah Simmons discuss the NFL, their institutional pattern of violence and what that could mean for Black women and girls who are fans of the game. Monday, September 22nd, 7pmEST.
