In a letter to University of Louisville president Dr. Neeli Bendapudi, former U of L basketball All-American Alfred “Butch” Beard asked the school “to remove my name and accomplishments from any existing or future mention.”

Beard wrote that “the university’s commitment to young Black men is far from what it should look like in 2021.”
