Sinking Columbus
Posted by rccaahistory on October 12, 2009

I found this article about how Christopher Colombus is taught in schools and revealing his “dark side”. I know it’s not a slavery article, but it made me think about the Sinking Colombus we read earlier in the semester, so I thought it was interesting.


((I love the quote at the end of this article…”Every hero is somebody else’s villain,” said Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, a scholar and author of several books related to Columbus, including “1492: The Year the World Began.”

“Heroism and villainy are just two sides of the same coin.”<<-so true!))
