Black Bodies and the National Football League


The National Football League accounted for 82 of the 100 most-watched U.S. TV broadcasts in 2022. And yet, NFL players do not have guaranteed contracts, and the league average career length is just over 3 years. In the season 4 premiere of Undisciplined, we hear from Dr. Charles Ross, a professor of history and expert in African American history and sports history.

You can hear Dr. Ross' lecture "State of the Game" as the Timothy Donovan Lecturer at 6 p.m. Monday, January 30, in Giffels Auditorium in Old Main.

Host: Dr. Caree Banton
Guest: Dr. Charles Ross
Producer: Matthew Moore

Undisciplined is a production of KUAF Public Radio, Ozarks at Large, and the African and African American Studies program at the University of Arkansas.
