The Las Vegas Raiders, grappling with allegations of a hostile work environment, named Sandra Douglass Morgan to be the team’s president, making her the first Black woman to hold that position in the National Football League. 

“From the moment I met Sandra, I knew she was a force to be reckoned with,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said Thursday in a statement. “We are extremely lucky to have her at the helm.”
