Kentucky to the World (KTW) is excited to bring together University of Louisville basketball legends who changed history both on and off the court during a live program on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at the Muhammad Ali Center as part of the Republic Bank Foundation Speaker Series.
This conversation will explore the barrier-breaking era of desegregation with former UofL athletes who paved the way for future athletes of color. The program will touch on how their struggles and triumphs went on to shape their lives. As part of the evening, guests will hear from former players Wade Houston and Eddie Whitehead, who broke the basketball color barrier at UofL in 1962.
UofL Director of Development for Diversity and Engagement Valerie Combs, the first Black woman to sign a letter of intent to attend UofL on a basketball scholarship, and Judge Derwin Webb, a captain of the UofL basketball team who went on to become Kentucky’s first male African-American Family Court Judge, will round out the program.
Join us for a light reception in the Viewpoint Room at 5:30 pm, before the program begins.
