DeAndre Levy is a star of the Detroit Lion's American football team, but it is not just on the field that he excels. Never afraid to speak out, he has dedicated to educating and changing the 'macho culture' that exists in American football and wider society. DeAndre has joined the effort of other organisations and individuals across the city of Detroit to test more than 11,000 neglected rape kits and investigate and prosecute the resulting cases as part of the Enough Said programme. The BBC's Joel Hammer has been to Detroit to meet DeAndre and Peg Tallet of the Michigan Women's Foundation and enoughsaiddetroit.org Post Surrealist Cech and his Mate: What is the relationship like between goalkeepers and their goal?

Sporting Witness Fifty years on from an historic basketball match in the United States between an all-white team from the University of Kentucky and an all-back team from Texas Western College.

Kentucky were the overwhelming favourites but the black players from Texas Western pulled off a surprise win despite enduring racial insults on the court. Their victory also dispelled the general view among basketball experts that black players were too ill-disciplined to play their sport tactically.
