Sports Stereotypes

For educators: StereotypesCulturalAppropriationSportsAgenda.docx

Join commentators, scholars, authors, and representatives from sports organizations for a series of panel discussions on racist stereotypes and cultural appropriation in American sports.

Explore the mythology and psychology of sports stereotypes and mascots.

 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.

Engage in a lively “community conversation” about the name and logo of the Washington, D.C., professional football organization.

Reception will follow immediately after the symposium.
