When: Sat., Nov. 7, 4-6 p.m. 2020
Reverend Nick Miles will present a program entitled “Columbus: Discovery? Or Invasion?” Spurred by an interest in this topic, which has raised many questions – most notably: Why is Columbus Day a federal holiday in the United States, when Columbus never even landed on these shores?, Nick will discuss prevailing myths, known facts and their implications. He will also explore the contradictions and outright fabrications of the Columbus story. This program is funded in part by Humanities New York with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
