This week for #FutureBlackHistory, we are honoring Rich Paul. The power agent represents some of the biggest names in sports like LeBron James and Anthony Davis and has negotiated over $1 billion in contracts. But he’s never rested on his laurels and has dedicated himself to standing up for the underdog.
He spoke out against the NCAA rule requiring agents to hold a bachelor’s degree which effectively barred those from marginalized communities or lower economic backgrounds. Over All Star weekend, he launched Klutch Conversations, engaging youth on financial literacy. For always using his position to pay it forward, Rich Paul is Future History.
