Author Talk: Dr. Andrés Reséndez
February 7 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Philanthropiece staff will be joining our friends from Right Relationship Boulder at this talk discussing “The Other Slavery” – of Native Americans.
“Since the time of Columbus, Indian slavery was illegal in the Americas. Yet, as Andrés Reséndez illuminates in his myth-shattering book, The Other Slavery – which will be the subject of this year’s Athearn Lecture – it was practiced for centuries as an open secret. Indeed, Dr. Reséndez builds the incisive, original case that it was mass slavery, more than epidemics, that decimated Indian populations across North America. The Other Slavery is nothing less than a key missing piece of American history. For over two centuries we have fought over, abolished, and tried to come to grips with African American slavery. It is time for the West to confront an entirely separate, equally devastating enslavement we have long failed truly to see.” [adapted from book jacket copy]
