Seattle - In recognition of Black History Month in February, the College Football Hall of Fame and KeyBank present The Field Generals, an African American NFL Quarterback Club featuring Doug Williams, Randall Cunningham, Warren Moon, Marlin Briscoe and James Harris.
The Field Generals will participate in a luncheon and panel discussion on Tuesday, February 22 at 11:30 a.m. in the Century Center. Topics for the panel discussion will center on race relations in football, specifically the lack of African-American head coaches in Division I-A football and the integration through the years of African-American quarterbacks in the NFL.
An autograph session will follow the luncheon and panel discussion. All five of the guest speakers will be accessible to the media following the autograph session. The Field Generals also will be available for call-in radio and print interviews prior to the event.
