COLUMBUS IN AMERICA

You'll receive

Every second Monday in October, imperialism, colonialism, racism, greed, religion, human rights, environmentalism and education all take center stage around one of the most useful and enduring symbols in American history – Christopher Columbus.
How is Columbus everywhere in a land he never knew existed, in a nation that wasn’t formed for nearly three centuries after his death? For a man responsible for one history’s most monumental events – one with consequences that still ripple through different cultures in the US – why have so many Americans learned nothing beyond a rhyme and the names of his three ships?
Through interviews with cultural leaders, historians, authors, activists and educators at the center of this important issue, COLUMBUS IN AMERICA explores how the man who first brutalized Indigenous people in the so-called "New World" became a hero in a nation guilty of its own atrocities against Native peoples, and how a movement led by a generation raised on instant access to information is challenging his place in American society. (89 Minutes)
