This edition: The Art and Sport of Fencing With Peter Westbrook

Episode Details

Original tape date: September 7, 2016.

First aired: September 28, 2016.

When Peter Westbrook became the first black man to win an Olympic medal in fencing in the 80s, he vowed to put his win and stature to good use. After later establishing the Peter Westbrook Foundation, he's done just that. Through his initiative he trains black inner city youth to honor the sport and use it as a means of expression beyond its physical requirements. His trainees include accomplished black fencers such as Nzingha Prescod, Keeth and Erin Smart, and Ibtihaj Muhammad who recently won bronze at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

Peter Westbrook joins Carol Jenkins to discuss the art and sport of fencing and how black athletes dominated several other sports at the Olympics in Rio.
