Glory Years of Redskins Football to be Relived Through Upcoming Documentary
Every Washingtonian remembers the glory years of the Redskins. The Humanities Council is making possible a documentary on those years, of success, 1982-1992, entitled, "Washington Redskins: the Winning Years." Telling the story of the Redskins glory years through the voices of star players and Washingtonians alike, the film illustrates how our football teams winning streak united the city and sparked community pride.
During the years from 1982 to 1992, the Redskins won three Super Bowls, carrying the trophy in 1983,1988, and 1992! The Redskins also made it to five NFC championships during those ten years, and advanced to the playoffs seven times.
Join the Humanities Council of Washington, DC as we celebrate our 30th Anniversary as the organization that continues to bring the celebration of cultural heritage to our nation's capital!
Washingtonians were united through their football team during these ten glorious years, a legacy that continues to instill pride in our city since the early 1980s. In celebration of this continuing pride over the past three decades, in its 30th anniversary year the Humanities Council is making possible this documentary short. The film is also sponsored by Silver Spring Media Arts and will premiere at the 30th Anniversary Showcase on Tuesday, September 21, 2010.
