Mel Blount: Football, Racism in America & the Unwavering Faith to Overcome it all
Five-time NFL Pro Bowler, Hall of Famer and Pittsburgh Steelers legend Mel Blount stops by the studio to share the kind of wisdom that can only be gained from lived experience. The 73 year old is often described as one of the best to ever play the sport of football, but rarely does he share the details of how his story began. Growing up as a black man in the segregated South, Blount faced what seemed like insurmountable odds on his path to success. Once he made it to the NFL, he thought his experience with racism would be over, but it was just beginning. Join us for his never-before-heard account of life as black football star, why he believes racism in America will never truly be over, and why he still has faith in spite of it all.
