It’s no secret that the Power 5 schools are all Predominantly White Institutions better known as PWI’s. One of the Power 5 schools is DUKE University. The culture is shifting across the college athletics landscape. DUKE University has officially announced the new Vice-President and Athletic Director will be Nina King. Not only is she well deserving of this promotion but she is 1 of 3 Black Women Athletic Directors across the entire Power 5 school index. MAJOR!

Nina is very well knowledgeable about her upcoming new position, which is slated to start Sept. 1. But when asked of the importance, King said. “I am a female Black athletic director. There are only a few of us around the country. We’ve got work to do in our profession to continue to build a pipeline and ensure that deserving people have a chance to grow and to lead.”

What a time to be BLACK in SPORTS! Especially a BLACK WOMAN!
