On Sept. 17 at 5 p.m., the Academy Museum will host “An Evening with Sacheen Littlefeather,” a special program of conversation, healing and celebration that will reflect on the historic 1973 Academy Awards ceremony during which Sacheen Littlefeather (Apache/Yaqui/AZ) declined Marlon Brando’s Academy Award at his request.
The event, programmed by Littlefeather and produced by Academy Museum vice president of education and public engagement Amy Homma, is part of the museum’s ongoing dedication to create programs and exhibitions in partnership with film artists and communities that illuminate the entertainment industry’s past and pave the way for meaningful change in its future.
As “An Evening with Sacheen Littlefeather” is at capacity, the museum will livestream the program on its YouTube channel. The program will be available until Friday, Sept. 23. A standby line will also be available at the museum starting at 2 p.m. on Sept. 17.
In addition, the museum will publish a nearly four-hour visual history of Littlefeather, interviewed by Academy Museum director and president Jacqueline Stewart, following “An Evening with Sacheen Littlefeather.”
Details will be shared following the event. For information, visit academymuseum.org/en/programs/detail/sa cheen-littlefeather-018265e0-6c77- e32a-ab88-0242875ef766.
