When sports are at the mercy of politics, how do players and coaches respond? Looking beyond our collective institutional memory, we can turn to a time in Loyola Marymount University football history, in an era rife with discrimination, to a decisive moment that teetered on the edge between principle and policy. Of race, touchdowns, and ethics, this exhibition tells the story of the game the nationally-ranked team did not play in the season of 1950.
"Touchdown in the Time of Discrimination" is an exhibition created by Javier Garibay, Librarian-in-Residence at the William H. Hannon Library. The exhibition is on display in Level 1 of the library.
