Hello! My name is Rossi Anastopoulo, and I’m currently a high school senior at Ashley Hall. As a senior, I have the unique opportunity to immerse myself in a year long senior project that is both research and community based. For my topic, I chose to study the advancement of the civil rights movement through sports and the impact athletics have had on race relations throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. I’m truly excited to be able to study a topic I’m so passionate about for the entire year and to be able to share my research here with you!
