The world of sports is synonymous with applause, competition, challenges and demonstrations of joy. However, it is also a stage upon which different societal positions as well as constant changes and challenges play out. Doubtless, the most representative and loved athletes of the Dominican Republic include Juan Marichal, the only Dominican inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame; Félix Sánchez, reigning Olympic champion in track and field; César Gerónimo, Major League player and winner of 4 consecutive Gold Glove Awards and Pedro Leandro Rodríguez, founder of the Dominican Basketball League, sports researcher and cofounder of the Dominican Republic Sports & Education Academy. These sports giants will discuss the different scenarios that affect sports today and, above all, the influence of Latinos in world sports.
This conversation will accompany the screening of the film 42, a real life story about racism that prevailed in major league baseball in the 1940s and what is happening in that area today.
