ESPN’s Mark Wright is a journalist whose dynamic career not only allows him to closely follow the sports that he loves, but also provides him with an opportunity to explore issues that he cares about deeply.

After a long career in print and then digital journalism, today Mark creates projects for The Undefeated. That is ESPN’s premier media platform for exploring the intersections of race, sports and culture.

In today’s episode, Mark will tell us the story of how he produced “Redemption Song,” a short film about how Howard University’s soccer team lost – and then won back – the chance to be the first Historically Black College to win an NCAA title.

And as the conversation continues, Mark will share his insights for creating a resilient, entrepreneurial career.
