Christopher Columbus: Villain or Hero?

chris1:30 pm - 3 pm in the Community Room, Lower Level
Each October brings our annual observance of the “discovery” of America by Christopher Columbus in 1492. Once hailed as a bold explorer and icon of Italian-American pride, Columbus is now condemned by some as a genocidal tyrant. Join historian John Maietta as he presents the true story of Columbus’ four fateful voyages to the New World, recounts the troubling circumstances of his final years in Spain, and examines the complex and controversial legacy he leaves behind today.
