Event Description:

About the Program

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 fact. 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.

Panelists

Moderated by DAVID ROSENBERG, Director, Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity and Professor of Law, Baruch College
MARC EDELMAN, Professor of Law, Baruch College and Contributor, Forbes SportsMoney
PAUL LUKAS, Columnist, ESPN.com
SIMON MOYA-SMITH, Contributing Columnist, CNN
