Dr. Jerlando F. L. Jackson, director of Wisconsin’s Equity and Inclusion Laboratory, was featured on In Black America, a weekly radio show on KUT in Austin, Texas.
In Black America began broadcasting interviews with national and international leaders in 1970, with a focus on issues affecting Black Americans. Since 1980, it has been hosted by John L. Hanson Jr., and the show has featured interviews with luminaries including Andrew Young, Coretta Scott King, and Arthur Ashe.

Jackson also previewed his upcoming National Study of Intercollegiate Athletics, which will investigate hiring practices in intercollegiate athletics.
