Sports, Segregation, Education: History’s Impact on Today's Black Athletes featuring Indiana University-Indianapolis Associate Professor of Education, Dr. Robin L. Hughes and Coach Robert L. Hughes, legendary coaching figure and Morgan Wooten Lifetime Achievement Award winner.

Dr. Hughes' research focuses on three areas of student and faculty higher educational and sociological issues including the development of students who are athletes participating in revenue generating sports and the retention and recruitment of African American students in college, their experiences, development, and perceptions about the campus climate.

Dr. Hughes co-edited Dismantle This: Deconstructing Policy and Instutionalized ‘isms’ through Critical Race Theory, and is Co-editor and co-founder of the Journal for the Study of Sports and Athletes in Education.

Coach Robert L. Hughes has led multiple state championship teams since the 1960's. At the time of his retirement in 2005, Hughes was the national all-time leader in wins amassing 1,333 wins compared to only 264 losses.

Today, Coach Hughes delivers motivational speeches about  athleticism, academics, leadership, sportsmanship and discipline -- all skills that should be used both on and off the court.
