COLLEGE PARK, Md. – NFL great Bobby Mitchell, who integrated the Washington Redskins, and Darryl Hill, who did the same for the University of Maryland’s football team, will be featured in the sixth annual Shirley Povich Symposium, Wednesday, November 2, at 7:00 p.m. in the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center at the University of Maryland.

Mitchell, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, has been celebrated as one of the most significant players in Redskins’ history. Hill, who transferred to Maryland from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1961, was the first African-American to play varsity football at Maryland in 1962, and the first African-American to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
"To have these two outstanding individuals participating at this year’s Povich Symposium is a very special moment, symbolizing the 50th anniversary of the integration of both teams," said Kevin Klose, Dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism.

Mitchell, who retired from the NFL in 1969, became the Redskins’ director of college scouting and assistant general manager. He and his wife Gwen live in Washington. Hill, now a businessman, played briefly in the NFL. He lives in Prince George’s County, MD.

This year’s panel also includes retired NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, Maryland Athletic Director Kevin Anderson, film documentarian Theresa Moore, ESPN radio and television commentator Scott Van Pelt, and ESPN and ABC commentator Michael Wilbon, former sports columnist of The Washington Post. Television host Maury Povich, son of the late Washington Post columnist Shirley Povich for whom the symposium is named, will moderate. The event is free and open to the public.

Shirley Povich reported many of the 20th century’s most important sports events during a 75-year Washington Post career that ended with his death in June 1998. His work conveyed his sense that sports often reflected and resulted in wider societal changes.

Typical of Povich’s literary skill and social sensibility was his description of Cleveland Browns star Jim Brown’s 1960 performance against the all-white Redskins: "Jim Brown integrated the Redskins’ goal line with more than deliberate speed, perhaps exceeding the Supreme Court decree. Brown fled the 25 yards like a man in an uncommon hurry, and the Redskins’ goal line, at least, became interracial."

The Philip Merrill College of Journalism is a nationally recognized leader in journalism education, with an acclaimed faculty teaching an innovative curriculum in the professional practice of journalism and scholarly research in journalism.
