7:00PM Screening Room, Corner Stone Arts Building. Tuesday May 8th.

Film Screening and discussion of the film “More than a Word” with commentary and discussion with Gregg Deal.
More Than A Word
More than mascots. More than stereotypes.
Released in 2017, the film “More Than A Word” analyzes the Washington football team and their use of the derogatory term R*dskins. Using interviews from both those in favor of changing the name and those against, “More Than A Word” presents a deeper analysis of the many issues surrounding the Washington team name. The documentary also examines the history of Native American cultural appropriation.

Directed by brothers John and Kenn Little, who are members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, the film traces how the word “r*dskin” evolved from being a term of racist derision and slander to being embraced as the name of one of the NFL’s most beloved franchises, and the team whose home is in U. S. capital. It also draws on the voices of Native American activists and scholars to place this controversy within the wider context of Native American history and racial stereotyping more generally.
