The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity presents
Native American Imagery in North American Sports: Fair or Foul?
A discussion with
ESPN Columnist, Paul Lukas, CNN Contributing Columnist, Simon Moya-Smith,
and Baruch’s own Prof. Marc Edelman
From: Matthew B. LePere, Associate Director of the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity
From the Washington Redskins to the Cleveland Indians. From the Florida State Seminoles to the University of Illinois Fighting Illini. North American sports teams are rife with Native American themed nicknames, mascots, and logos. Many Americans don't think twice about this. However, for many others, these team names and associated imagery are an added insult in the cruel history of our nation's indigenous people. They see their culture bastardized and their traditions mocked as professional and collegiate teams seemingly appropriate Native American identity to sell tickets and merchandise.
Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity as we host a panel of experts who will draw from their own unique perspectives on the issue. Free pre-registration is required to attend.
Thursday, September 8. Newman Library, Room 750. Light lunch will be served beginning at noon. The program will begin
