At the Heart of Gold – Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal

At the Heart of Gold – Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal

Friends of our blog will know we’ve covered the USA Gymnastics abuse scandal several times already. But, we feel strongly there is a lot to be said and learned about this tragic part of recent sports history. In this HBO documentary, we focus more on the lessons about the power of institutions. USAG had a policy of silencing, gaslighting, and a culture of harm that created the space for Larry Nassar to thrive. We also have larger questions about accountability – both from institutions and the viewing public.

Join us next week for a history rabbit hole as we talk about the Triangle Shirt Waist Factory Fire of 1911.
