"More than a Word" Film and Discussion

November 24, 2017
6:00pm

Presented by ASU's Center for Study of Race and Democracy

Long before #TakeAKnee protests, the movement against Native American mascots, derogatory team naming and cultural appropriation in sports proved a catalyst for discussion and debate about race and democracy in American culture. “More Than a Word” offers an inside look at these contentious issues through the campaign and legal cases against the Washington R*skins, and traces how racist terminology became embraced and beloved by sports teams and fans.
