    Racist Stereotypes and Cultural Appropriation in American Sports
    Thursday, February 7, 2013 | 10:15 AM – 5:45 PM EST

    Join sports writers, scholars, authors, and representatives from sports organizations for lively panel discussions on racist stereotypes and cultural appropriation in American sports.

    Explore the mythology and psychology of sports stereotypes and mascots, and examine the retirement of “Native American” sports references and collegiate efforts to revive them despite the NCAA’s policy against “hostile and abusive” nicknames and symbols.

    End the afternoon with a spirited community conversation about the name and logo of the Washington, D.C. professional football team, with sports writers from the Washington Post and USA Today, along with eminent members of the D.C. community.  Reception to follow immediately.
