Arthur R. Miller, one of the nation's most distinguished legal scholars and a renowned commentator on the law and society, will moderate a panel discussion on "Sports, Media and Race: The Impact on America."

Harry Edwards, author of "The Revolt of the Black Athlete" and architect of the Olympic Project for Human Rights, which led to the Black Power Salute protest by African-American athletes at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City, is one of the featured panelists. Edwards, emeritus professor of sociology at the University of California at Berkeley, has taken vocal and dissonant positions on the relationship of African American athletes to American culture. He has been a proponent of black participation in the management of professional sports.

The event is sponsored by the Texas Program in Sports and Media, the College of Communication and the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum.
