PODCAST: Kim Terrell-Kearney on Bowling’s Diversity Problem

by Gianmarc Manzione 0

An online ESPN publication called The Undefeated, which describes itself as "the premier platform for exploring the intersections of race, sports and culture," last week ran a fascinating piece that studied a simple question: Why are there not more athletes of color competing at the pro level in the sport of bowling? You can read the story here: theundefeated.com/features/kim-ter…-womens-bowling/. One of the main voices in that piece was USBC Hall of Famer Kim Terrell-Kearney, who spoke with BJI Editor Gianmarc Manzione about why the lack of diversity in pro bowling is a problem and why it’s important that the bowling industry do something about it. The full conversation with Kim Terrell-Kearney, winner of 11 PWBA Tour titles, including three majors, and current head bowling coach at North Carolina A&T can be heard here: https://soundcloud.com/user-658733792/kim-terrell-kearney-on-bowlings-diversity-problem
