#022 - Four members of the Collegiate Rowers of Color met and discussed how they are doing at this time, what it's like being the only or few people of color on their team, and what they are doing (or wish they were doing) on their collegiate teams to face anti-blackness in rowing. Listen to their stories and learn from what they have to share with regard to what has created progress versus what has caused pain.
