Adam Howard, the Charles A. Dana Professor of Education, appears in the documentary The Boys in Red Hats, which was reviewed by Film Threat, a website that champions indie filmmakers. The second page of the review includes a screenshot of Howard, an expert on social class issues who plays a prominent role in the film by presenting one of the two sides in the January 2019 confrontation at the Lincoln Memorial between Native American activist Nathan Phillips and Nicholas Sandmann from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky.
