Football History Made During Black History Month
Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy and Chicago Bears Head Coach Lovie Smith made history in the National Football League on Sunday, February 4th, when they led their respective football teams onto the field at Dolphin Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, to compete in Super Bowl XLI. They became the first African-American head coaches to participate in professional football's premier game. The Colts prevailed, 29-17. It is appropriate that this most-watched American sports event took place during the nation's celebration of Black History Month.
