Olympic Committee Member Anita DeFrantz Discusses Irony of her Olympic Career
On Our World with Black Enterprise, we sit down with International Olympic Committee member Anita DeFrantz, who visits us on her way to Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 Winter Olympics. She talks about her career as an Olympian and her controversial stance against former President Jimmy Carter during the 1980 Olympic Boycott. Plus, we profile Paralympic skier, Bonnie St. John, who is the first African American to win a ski racing medal. And finally, we catch up with NJ LEEP, a New Jersey project exposing young teenagers to a career in law.
