The Black Coaches Classic grew out of a concern for the underrepresentation of Black leaders in coaching and in the administrative ranks of scholastic and collegiate athletics. Bob Hohler wrote in the Boston Globe on August 22, 2020 that, "The lack of Black leaders in New England college sports is what institutional and systemic racism looks like". We agree that representation matters, and we decided to do something about it.
The Dennis Wilson & Harry Wilson Montage represents only a portion of the love the community has for their collective contribution. This official Highlight video, while providing a stage for student-athletes to showcase their skills, also helps to express the importance of such an event through the words of coaches themselves. Stay tuned for the date of the 2nd Black Coaches Classic YouTube and BNN (Boston Neighborhood Network) re-broadcast.
