1492-1992: The Legacy of Columbus
Program #ZINH008. Recorded in Madison, WI on October 09, 1991.
For as long as many of us can remember Christopher Columbus represented the best in Western civilization. We were regaled with stories of his bravery and genius. Textbooks praised his seamanship. He was the discoverer par excellence. There were parades and holidays. Now, with the 500th anniversary of Columbus' arrival in the Western Hemisphere, a much more critical and realistic view of the Italian-born Spanish explorer is emerging. Howard Zinn chips at and strips away some of the myths of the Columbus legend.
