KENNETH D. FERGUSON, ESQ

UMKC Professor of Law

Description:

The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, Kansas City Athletics, and other institutional and independent partners are sponsoring The Arc of Race in Professional & Collegiate Sports.
The symposium will focus on a range of issues surrounding
race and other identity characteristics in professional and
collegiate sports industries, including race norming
and NFL Concussion Settlement & Claims Process, the In-
tersection of race & gender in mental health of profes-
sionals & collegiate athletes, race norming in medical
treatment & clinical diagnostics and what it means for
litigation, the Intersection of race and gender in pro-
fessional and collegiate sports hiring, race and gen-
der in name, image, and likeness issues surround-
ing collegiate sports, and the unfairness of NFL
Concussion Settlement unfairly ignoring families
of players who died with Chronic Traumatic
Encephalopathy (CTE), affecting players of all
races. The issue of race continues to be at
the forefront of our nation’s conscious and,
with the celebration of the 50-years since
enactment of Title IX, so does both gen-
der equity racial gender equity.
