SEC Storied: “Courage Matters – The C. M. Newton Story” (Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET)
Featuring one of the towering figures in Southeastern Conference history, the latest chapter in ESPN Films’ SEC Storied series is “Courage Matters – The C. M. Newton Story.” Premiering Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 9 p.m. ET on SEC Network, the film explores the story of Newton’s influence on the basketball world, a career spanning seven decades as an innovator and an advocate for the advancement of African-Americans in athletics. Newton was the first head coach to integrate a team at the University of Alabama, the first to start five black players in an SEC basketball lineup, and, as the athletic director for his alma mater, the administrator who hired Kentucky’s first African-American men’s and women’s head coaches. Newton was also the first athletic director in the SEC to hire two different national championship-winning coaches in the same sport.
