The National Football League has been a man’s world for far too long. Sandra Douglass Morgan is here to shake things up. In 2022, the Las Vegas Raiders named Douglass Morgan President of the Las Vegas Raiders, making her the first Black Woman President of an NFL team. Morgan is an attorney by trade, but that hasn’t stopped her from diving head-first into her role on the Raiders team. The team has had its share of scandals related to racism--in 2021, former Raiders head coach Jon Gruden resigned due to leaked emails containing racist and homophobic language--and the first order of business for this no-nonsense attorney has been getting the team back on track. This isn’t Douglass Morgan’s first time breaking down barriers in the legal or sports world. Douglass Morgan was Nevada’s first Black city attorney. And she also happens to be the first Black woman to chair Nevada’s hugely influential gaming control board. So for breaking about a million barriers in far too many categories to count, we tip our hats to Douglass Morgan and award her a much deserved spot on The Root 100 list.
