Former National Basketball Association star and cannabis investor Chris Webber will be teaching a new online course for Morehouse University called “Activism in Sports and Culture.” The course, which will be hosted on the online learning platform Coursera, will explore the role athletes, coaches, and media personalities have played in shaping public opinion on inequality and furthering civil rights, Morehouse announced in a press release. Chris Webber launches US$100 million cannabis fund with J.W. Asset Management Toronto company partners with former NBA player Al Harrington on CBD topical line How Method Man and Al Harrington plan to empower black ownership in the weed industry “Morehouse has been a pillar in our society, the Black community, and social justice movements. There is no better partner to launch this course and no better time than Black History Month. Launching on Coursera allows millions of learners from all walks of life to take this course,” said Webber. “I want those who enroll to be inspired and informed after hearing from the people who have made the greatest sacrifices to influence public conversations.” The course will cost US$49 and will take about 15 hours to complete, reports EdScoop . Webber, a five-time NBA All-Star and a broadcaster with TNT, made headlines earlier this week by announcing he’s investing in a $100 million private equity cannabis fund focused on supporting entrepreneurs from underrepresented communities. “It’s crucial that we diversify leadership within the cannabis industry and level the playing field for people from our communities,” Webber told Reuters. The fund is in partnership with New York-based JW Asset Management.
