ORGANIZATIONS WE ADMIRE

The Black Women in Sport Foundation’s mission is to increase the involvement of Black women and girls in all aspects of sport, including athletics, coaching, and administration.

“I was told that I didn’t fit the mold because I was the wrong color. I knew if I wanted to be incharge of something, I would have to create an opportunity because nobody was going to give it to me. The Foundation was my way of doing that.”
