POPSspot Sports Radio welcomes Dr. Charlene Teters, (Spokane) as this week's special guest. Known for her activism and art, She is presently a professor at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  As a founding Board Member of the National Coalition on Racism in Sports and the Media, her activist-career began with a vigorous dispute with the University of Illinois over their use of a stereotyped image of an American Indian for the school’s sports mascot.  She picketed sports events and launched a national debate about the appropriateness of this practice by sports and media.  This history of Teters’ work is the subject of a nationally aired award winning documentary “In Whose Honor?” by Jay Rosenstein.
