NEW YORK, NY – Last week three black men offered their views on racism in and and away from rugby. This week, we get the female perspective from three USA Rugby pillars, Phaidra Knight, Alycia Washington & Naya Tapper. Their conversation with Steve Lewis & Matt McCarthy is sometimes awkward and even testy… which is a necessary component of moving forward. This extended Community Corner segment, courtesy of The Murphy Kennedy Group, is worth your time.
There is no time like the present for candid, if awkward, conversations about racism, perceptions and the narrowing of the divide(s) that are cause for protests, boycotts and violence here in America, and abroad. Rugby United NY, Old Blue & Roots star, Derek Lipscomb, joins New York Rugby’s David Flemister and Junior Blaber in a sometimes uncomfortable conversation with Matt McCarthy re their experiences, hopes and calls for action.
Don’t let the length keep you from watching/listening. It moves quickly.
