On Oct. 9, Cleo Littleton, an inductee of the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame (KSHF) in 2005, spoke to members of Newman's Sports Psychology class.

Littleton spoke on the racism and prejudice he encountered as one of the first black players to break the unofficial color barrier in the Missouri Valley Conference. The KSHF says Littleton was "the cornerstone of Wichita State University's (WSU) first venture into national prominence in college basketball." He was the first to score more than 2,000 points in a career with 2,164, and still holds that record at WSU. Learn more about Littleton from the KSHF.
