Please join the Boston Public Library for a screening of a documentary about the movement to end Native American mascots.


More Than a Word takes us inside the growing grassroots movement to encourage sports leagues at all levels to eliminate Native American-themed mascots and team names. Directed by John and Kenn Little of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, the film places the successful, indigenous-led effort to change the name of Washington’s NFL football team within the wider context of Native American history and the long, destructive legacy of racial stereotyping, white supremacy, and cultural appropriation. With eye-opening commentary from Native American scholars and activists, More Than a Word serves as a necessary reminder that words, images, and struggles over meaning have the power to shape history.


This program is presented by the Boston Public Library as part of their Never Too Late Group created with older adults in mind. Due to the ample seating available in the Rabb Lecture Hall, registration is not required; instead, seating is first come, first served. This performance has been rescheduled from Thursday, October 6.
