If it’s one thing we at Essence are going to do, it’s highlight, support and give Black women their flowers for their endless contributions to the culture.
During the Essence Black Women in Sports Celebration Bowl, presented by Coca-Cola™, we did just that as we honored some trailblazers paving the way in the world of sports.
Olympic track and field champion, Sanya Richards-Ross and Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference(MEAC) Commissioner Sonja Stills took the stage as we showered them with love for their hard work throughout the years.
Attendees, athletes and influencers chimed in as panelists discussed visibility, equity in pay for Black women in sports and HBCU’s.
