ESPN: The Undefeated presents “The Unapologetic”

This February we had the pleasure to work on a very interesting, intense, and what should be a very on-going conversation with female athletes. We are truly inspired by many of the stories, sadly only a few of the conversation made air for this 30 minute show on ESPN 2. A.J. Spoke to athletes from aila Ali, Michelle Carter, Misty Copeland, Allyson Felix, Simone Manuel, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Nneka Ogwumike and A’ja Wilson and focuses on marketing of the black female athlete, body image and hair, pay equality and representation in sports.

There were so many things we really had no idea about, and am happy to have taken away with from this show.

Here is some additional information and press releases:
