Land of Columbus

Rev. Beth Banks, Worship Leaders, Jaki Leiva Conklin, Worship Associate. 

Columbus Day continues as a Federal holiday, though Columbus never set foot on this continent.  We mark the day by learning about the People of Color who knew this place as home and are often only given a nod of recognition in mainstream history books.  Sources: An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz and other texts.
