    Esport and Gaming Futures

    In a little more than a decade, esport has become a billion-dollar global industry that engages hundreds of millions of viewers with weekly gaming competitions. Video games have always had a competitive component, but the early 2000s saw the birth of a more sophisticated industry around video game competition. Beginning in Korea with cable esports broadcasts of "Starcraft: Broodwar", esport has expanded into a global phenomenon built around high-stakes video game play.

"14: Dred Scott, Wong Kim Ark & Vanessa Lopez" traces these battles from their roots in the struggles against slavery prior to the Civil War, to the fight against the Chinese Exclusion Act in the late nineteenth century, to current anti-immigrant agitation.
