Welcome to a special summer episode of Six Degrees of Segregation. (And a special shout to Danny Rojas and Ted Lasso for this week's episode title.)
Today, we're talking with national champion gymnast and six-time All-American, Morgan Dennis Morris. Essence.com names her as one of the 13 Black Women Who Changed the Face of Gymnastics (https://www.essence.com/celebrity/13-black-women-who-changed-face-gymnastics/). So of course, we're talking 2020 Olympics, Simone Biles, mental health and the Twisties.
We get into so much more than that as conversation shifts to the NCAA Name and Likeness ruling, raising kids to show up as their full selves, and finally to the 2022 launch of her kids' clothing line, Scribble.
Morgan is a former elite-level athlete, entrepreneur, wife, mom of twins and recently welcomed baby #3. She and her husband Tim recently moved to Utah, where he serves as Assistant Men's Basketball Coach.
