Setting Brushfires 10-11-2019: The Truth About Christopher Columbus With Andre DiMino
Over the past several years, cities, school boards and universities across America have fallen victim to authoritarian policies of renaming Columbus Day or seeking removal of monuments of Christopher Columbus. In addition, these policies have also encouraged the desecration and destruction of monuments as many of us have seen in the last 12 months. Andrew DiMino, executive board member of the Italian American one Voice Coalition, joins me for this episode to talk about the truth of Christopher Columbus, his legacy and the desire to change the name of the holiday bearing his name, as well as the contributions of Italians who immigrated to America.
