Way Back in 2006 – Dr. Boyce in Madison Square Garden Arguing that College Athletes Should be Paid

March 15, 2011


Given that March Madness is about to begin, many around the country are wondering if it’s time to start paying college athletes.  Dr. Boyce Watkins appears below arguing that college athletes should be paid, and explains the reasons in Madison Square Garden in 2006 with Stephen A. Smith in attendance.

This is also a racial issue, since most of the individuals doing the work are black and those earning millions off of the labor are white.  The NCAA earns more money during March Madness than the Super Bowl and the World Series, so Dr. Watkins is a long-time advocate of college athletes having the same labor rights as everyone else.
