Join Smithsonian Affiliations and curator Dr. Damion Thomas for an online lecture about a sports legend. At one point during the 1990s Michael Jordan was the most recognizable man in the world. Almost twenty years after his last game, this presentation will evaluate his cultural legacy, and explain how he changed the world.

Dr. Damion Thomas is the Curator of Sports for the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. He earned a Ph.D. in United States History at UCLA. Prior to joining the museum, he was an assistant professor at the University of Maryland, College Park and the University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign, where he taught courses that focused on sports in United States history, sports and U.S. race relations, and sports and black masculinity. He is the author of Globetrotting: African American Athletes and Cold War Politics.

Lecture presented by Smithsonian Affiliations, in collaboration with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.

This is a free program.
