As part of the NBA’s observance and celebration of Juneteenth, the NBA league office Black Employee Resource Team, Dream in Color, invites all to attend a virtual panel discussion on June 17 from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m. ET with the forces behind “A Most Beautiful Thing,” a documentary executive-produced by NBA legends Grant Hill and Dwyane Wade, Seattle Storm President Ginny Gilder and GRAMMY award-winning artist Common. The film chronicles the history of the first U.S. African-American public high school rowing team.
Grant Hill, director Mary Mazzio and Arshay Cooper, a rower and the protagonist of the film, will discuss Arshay’s story, the origins of the film, Black history, Juneteenth and more. This discussion will be moderated by Stephanie Ready, broadcaster and host of NBA TV’s “The Bounce and The Warm Up.”
Please register here by June 16. The Zoom link to join the panel discussion, as well as a link to view the film in advance of the panel, will be provided via email upon registration.
