In 2017, Congresswoman Maxine Waters stated the infamous House floor procedure phrase of, "Reclaiming my time". Such a phrase, went viral for its symbolic underpinning of a confident Black woman "reclaiming her time" in a space that refused to acknowledge her authority and power. The phrase, "reclaiming my time" has transcended House floor procedure and is now used in popular culture to address instances of subordination of certain identity groups. This session will highlight sport narratives that need to be reclaimed due to misinformation, wrongly purported messages, and lack of knowledge about certain experiences and narratives within sport. The reclaiming of narratives is the focus of this session.
