A panel discussion with nine members of the "Black 14." 14 African-American players were dismissed from the University of Wyoming football team by then coach Lloyd Eaton. These players wanted to wear black armbands during the game with Brigham Young University the next day to protest a policy of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which they considered to be racist. Live streamed on September 12, 2019 from the campus of the University of Wyoming.
