A recent Smithsonian symposium and a flurry of Washington Post articles have reignited the debate over the Washington Redskins historic name and logo. Is it tradition or is it racism? No matter which point of view you support, join in on the discussion by engaging a panel of experts as we discuss the issue at this lively and enlightening mixer.
