Northwestern’s Hazing Scandal
Officially, hazing is illegal and unwelcome just about everywhere you turn. However, it continues as an open secret in far too many fraternities, sports teams, and other institutions.
The latest revelations from Northwestern University’s football team are a stark reminder that we have a long way to go to uproot the culture of hazing for good. Anti–gender violence activist and documentarian Byron Hurt joins Edge of Sports for a timely discussion on the harm hazing does and how we can stop it.
Also on this episode of Edge of Sports, Dr. Neftalie Williams joins us in our Ask a Sports Scholar segment to discuss the uniqueness and global influence of skateboarding.
