Episode 10 of The Murray Bank Racer Insider podcast features a visit with Murray State's first African-American varsity athlete, Dennis Jackson. When Dennis broke the color barrier at Murray State, he was also leading athletic integration in the OVC and across the South. Dennis starred in track and on the football field for the Racers, and he leaned on his faith and family as he faced various challenges through his career. His focus on his primary mission...completing his education...never wavered, and Dennis used his degree to carve out a career in education that has allowed him to serve young people and his community for 50 years.
