More Than a Word (2017) <h4>New at the Browning</h4>
Tickets Not On Sale

This documentary offers an intimate look inside the growing movement to change the name of the Washington R*dskins football team. Directors (and brothers) John and Kenn Little, who are members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, trace 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. 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.

Directors John and Kenn Little scheduled to appear in person! Director panel and Q&A to follow.

This is a free but ticketed event.
