Bay Sunday Show: Native Americans versus Columbus Day

About This Item

A Bay Sunday program broadcast on 4th October 1992, presented by Barbara Rodgers, on hate crime in the build up to Columbus Day. This segment is titled 'Native Americans versus Columbus Day' and features a discussion between Bob Castillo, Co-Coordinator of International Tribunal and John Legnitto, President of Columbus Day Celebration. Barbara Rodgers steers the debate between these oppositional viewpoints in the context of the 500th anniversary of Columbus Day. In reply to John Legnitto's argument that Italian American communities celebrate the history of their immigration on this day, Castillo reminds Legnitto that: "We were already here... to us Columbus represents the first assault of a mass European invasion of the North and South American continents." The TV Archive would like to thank guest-intern Siân Williams who remastered, catalogued and edited this show for the web.
