UNC will host a screening of the new EPIX documentary: “Schooled: The Price of College Sports.”  The documentary is inspired partly by award-winning author Taylor Branch’s recent book The Cartel: Inside the Rise and Imminent Fall of the NCAA, and includes interviews with a number of persons associated with UNC.  After the screening, beginning at approximately 8:30, we will have a town hall panel discussion and Q&A session with Andrew Muscato (the producer), Taylor Branch, Lawrence R. “Bubba” Cunningham (UNC’s Director of Athletics), Dwight Hollier (former UNC player and currently Director of Transition and Clinical Services in the NFL),  Dan Kane (reporter from the News & Observer), Bob Orr (former NC Supreme Court Justice), and Richard Southall (College Sports Research Institute).

This event is sponsored and organized by the UNC Faculty Athletics Reform Group.
