We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully. If you have questions about accessibility or require an accommodation such as CART captioning or ASL interpretation to participate in this event, please contact Accessibility Manager Helyn Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone at (614) 688–3890. Requests made by two weeks in advance will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the Wexner Center for the Arts will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
We are honored to join with Ohio State’s Department of Athletics, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Sports and Society Initiative to screen this compelling new documentary about the Loyola Ramblers, a team that changed the game of college basketball during the height of the civil rights era.
The Loyola Project chronicles the Loyola Ramblers, a boundary-busting team that featured four black starters and overcame numerous racial issues on the road—including death threats and debris thrown by hostile crowds—to ultimately become champions on the court and in the community. The film is narrated by 2021 Loyola basketball captain and Final Four team member Lucas Williamson. (88 mins., DCP)
Stay after the screening for a conversation about race, athletics, and other issues explored in the film. Panelists include Clark Kellogg, Ohio State basketball great, former Indiana Pacer, and current CBS Sports College Basketball analyst; Nicole Kraft, director of Ohio State’s Sports and Society Initiative; and Gary “Doc” Sailes, sport sociologist and an associate professor emeritus at Indiana University as well as a commercial sports industry consultant working with college, professional, and Olympic athletes, teams, and organizations (including the NBA, NFL, MLB, and NCAA). Wexner Center Director of Film/Video David Filipi moderates the conversation.
