Dean’s Distinguished Lecture by Dr. Scott Brooks

May 9th, 2016

Dean’s Distinguished Lecture by Dr. Scott Brooks
Event on 2016-05-31 15:00:00
Invites you to attend a Dean’s Distinguished Lecture by Dr. Scott Brooks Associate Professor Sociology       University of Missouri     Speaking on:   “What is a “Ga-roo”? Critical Race Coaching in South Philadelphia”   Unpaid, youth basketball coaches, like teachers, are important people in the lives of poor and working-class Black families in major urban cities. For many Black Philadelphia young men, basketball is something to believe in: it can improve one’s social position, access to better schools, and optimize one’s material and economic circumstances. And yet, the structure of competitive sport and its effects hurt many youth, producing feelings of mistreatment, inequity, and distrust. Coaches control the fundamental and limited resource that is needed for a player to “get known” and ascend the ranks: playing time. A player has to be given the opportunity to play and do things by their coach in order to stand out. Over the course of ten years, four of which I lived and was immersed in the environment, I conducted an ethnography, serving as a co-coach with Chuck Green in an elite summer basketball league. Chuck identifies four struggles that poor, Black, inner-city boys face in learning environments: social disinvestment, stereotyping and labeling, and misinformation. Chuck coaches in a manner that addresses these areas. A look at some of his understandings and practices illustrates how Yosso’s community cultural wealth framework might be operationalized more fully. Chuck understands, appreciates and praises the social, cultural, and emotional assets of inner-city, young Black men and uses a culturally relevant coaching pedagogy to create a learning environment that pushes young men to use their cultural tools and practices in ways that improve their potential for mobility.   Biography: Dr. Scott Brooks is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia with a joint appointment in the departments of sociology and Black studies. He is primarily an ethnographer interested in: equity, student engagement, coaching and leadership, and community based learning. He examines the influences, experiences, learning pathways and outcomes of underrepresented K-12 and college students, particularly athletes. Brooks has published in academic journals, edited volumes, and textbooks; been quoted and reviewed by the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, Der Speigel, and SLAM magazine; and invited to speak on the topic of sport internationally. Additionally, Dr. Brooks has consulted the NFL, MLB, college and high school coaches and athletes; and is a senior fellow at the Wharton Sports Business Initiative and Yale Urban Ethnography Project. His book, Black Men Can’t Shoot (University of Chicago, 2009), tells the importance of exposure, networks, and opportunities towards earning an athletic scholarship. Dr. Brooks closely followed two young Black men in South Philadelphia through their high school basketball experiences and documents their community based learning in how to ascend the ranks –getting known – and their social navigation of Philadelphia’s basketball world, complicating the myth of natural athleticism and the recruiting game. He is currently working on three manuscripts: one regarding coaching, a second that investigates high school basketball since 1950, and a third project on Black campus dating.      The lecture is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.  Seating is limited.   RSVP via this site or call 951-827-1493.
