Sandra Douglass Morgan is the epitome of Black Girl Magic as she was recently named the first Black female president of an NFL team, the Las Vegas Raiders.
Sandra is no stranger to breaking the mold, before landing the Raiders job, she was the first Black woman to serve as the Nevada Gaming Control Board chairwoman.
She served in that role from 2019-2021.
Reportedly, Sandra’s hiring was announced to Raiders employees via a letter on Thursday (July 7).
In the letter she wrote:
I am thrilled to join you as we embark on one of the most exciting times in the history of our organization
I look forward to meeting each of you in person over the coming weeks.
Let me be clear, I am not here to avoid or sidestep problems or concerns that need to be addressed.
I’ve given long and thoughtful consideration to joining you, and I’ve done so because I believe in the promise of the Raiders.
Most importantly, I believe in your core values of integrity, community, and commitment to excellence.
I will expect you to embody those and to hold me accountable to doing the same.
Sandra is the third Raiders team president in less than a year.
Marc Badain resigned last year on July 19 after 30 years with the organization.
He was replaced by Dan Ventrelle until he was fired in May over allegations of sharing concerns raised by employees who complained about the behavior of owner Mark Davis in the workplace.
The Raiders introduced Sandra Douglass Morgan as the new president at a news conference Thursday afternoon.
