Armies of Enablers

Join the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law for Armies of Enablers:Deconstructing sexual abuse of athletes and bystanders who perpetuated a culture of turning a blind eye.

This online conference that will discuss different issues—legal and non-legal alike– germane to examining assaults on athletes, including hearing the voices of the survivors. The conference will address ethical, legal, legislative, institutional, and medical questions in an effort to better understand the causes of the abuse and examine ways to prevent abuse in the future. The invited panelists represent a broad spectrum of expertise and experience who we are confident can shed important light on the many aspects of this issue and suggest ways to proactively address what has become an epidemic. While we understand the discussion is painful for many, we believe there is a compelling need —in the aftermath of Michigan State University, Penn State University, Ohio State University, USA Gymnastics, and the University of Michigan—-to directly address the abuse of athletes.

Utah Film Center Live Stream: LIL' BUCK: Real Swan

Bringing his experience in the ballet world with him, Lil Buck heads back to South Memphis to teach dance to the youth. On the streets, parking lots, and slippery floors of the Crystal Palace Roller Rink in Memphis, Tennessee, Charles “Lil Buck” Riley learned the smooth art of Memphis Jookin, igniting a lifelong passion for dance. From the time he was 12 years old, Lil Buck worked to perfect the intricate footwork of Jookin, a fluid street dance style that evolved from the Gangsta Walk, as well as the eye-popping isolated jolts of bucking. Quickly, he became one of the most admired street dancers of his generation. Lil Buck won a scholarship to study ballet and took his dancing to a whole new level, merging street-style Jookin with classical technique. After a breathtaking video was taken of him dancing to Camille Saint-Saëns’ “The Swan” accompanied by famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma went viral, Lil Buck’s career exploded. In this exuberant documentary, director Louis Wallecan takes an in-depth look at this extraordinary artist whose passion, drive, discipline, and talent have blazed a unique new path in the world of dance that has included performing all over the world, touring with Madonna, mentoring young dance students, and becoming a passionate advocate for arts education. – Tribeca Film Festival

Utah Film Center Live Stream: Driving While Black

Chronicling the riveting history and personal experiences of African Americans on the road from the advent of the automobile through the seismic changes of the 1960s and beyond. Drawing on a wealth of recent scholarship – and based on and inspired in large part by Gretchen Sorin’s recently published study of the way the automobile and highways transformed African American life across the 20th century – the film examines the history of African Americans on the road from the depths of the Depression to the height of the Civil Rights movement and beyond, exploring along the way the deeply embedded dynamics of race, space and mobility in America during one of the most turbulent and transformative periods in American history. Gretchen Sorin, Distinguished Professor and Director of The Cooperstown Graduate Program, started her research more than 20 years ago as an exhibition curator assembling visual records and oral histories of how the automobile provided greater mobility for Black Americans while further exposing them to systemic racism across the country. As she began her book, she approached Ric Burns to work with her on a film. Sorin met Burns while serving as a commentator for his 1999 film New York: A Documentary Film. Driving While Black utilizes a rich archive of material from the period – including footage, photographs, advertisements, road signs, maps, letters, and legal records – and weaves together oral histories and the on-camera insights of scholars, writers, musicians, and ordinary American travelers.
