A scholar in the game
Making the jump from scholar to activist, Noah Cohan, assistant director of the American Culture Studies program, writes about his project and podcast, Whereas Hoops. Together with collaborator John Early (Sam Fox School), they tackle a central question — Why are there no basketball hoops in Forest Park? — and enact a game plan for correcting that omission. Along the way, they explore what park-goers themselves want, the Delmar Divide and St. Louis’ rich basketball history.
