At the beginning of the previous decade, I started a volleyball magazine. It was known as COBRA. It was about telling the stories of African American players and showcasing their accomplishments so that young women of color could see that the sport could be an option as a means to further their education as well as for possible employment.
As the summer closes we celebrate our 42-part series by honoring our top 50 Hottest Summer Bods in Sports & Fitness.
In our 42nd installment of "Hot Summer Bods in Women's Sports & Fitness" we have two track athletes who are set to have big years in 2021 as well as a volleyball star that is bound to dominate the competition during her final collegiate season.
We made it to 41 as the summer stands on its last legs. We've had more unrest politically here in the United States and COVID-19 still continues to stomp its way through the nation. Despite the negative news we still find great women to admire. Their greatness will not be denied and their futures are bright, no matter how trying the times may appear.
August 28, 2020 was a historic day for East Cleveland's Shaw High School football program. It was the team's first game during the COVID-19 pandemic. The nation is also dealing with a challenging issue of police brutality and killings towards African Americans. Shaw happens to be a team comprised entirely of black coaches and players.
