WNBA Stars And The Battle For Gender Equality In Sports

“REVOLT BLACK NEWS Weekly” host Kennedy Rue sits down with WNBA star Jonquel Jones to talk about her professional basketball career. The well-respected athlete, who currently plays for the Connecticut Sun, also discusses her rise to becoming one of the league’s voices to champion and open the door for other women when it comes to gender equality in sports. This is a much-needed conversation considering what’s currently happening to Brittney Griner and her arrest in Russia. Watch above.

Inspired by Sean “Diddy” Combs’ successful “State Of Emergency: The State of Black America & Coronavirus” town hall, “REVOLT BLACK NEWS” is a platform that is designed to report news from the perspective of Black people for Black people.

“When I started REVOLT, I always wanted to develop a platform to report the news from our perspective, from our lens, from our people, so I decided to launch ’REVOLT BLACK NEWS.’” said Combs. “We’re here with solutions. We’ve already heard about what we can’t do, but this is what we can do.”
