Takoma | Nicolás Guillén Room | October 4, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us at Busboys and Poets Focus-In! Film Series: Cinema for a Conscious Community for a screening and panel of the documentary More Than A Word

More than mascots. More than stereotypes.

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. In partnership with Media Education Foundation, this documentary will be released in September 2017.

Free and open all! $5 Suggested donation.

Focus-In! Film Series: Cinema for a Conscious Community is a Busboys and Poets-produced monthly film series that screens films with a focus dedicated to social justice, peace, art, music, and/or community value.
