The United States Constitution begins with the inclusive sounding words "We the People", but it can be argued that it has never fully meant "All the People”. This is reflected in our history, which includes stolen lands, broken treaties, slavery, internment camps, mass incarceration, and gaping income inequality that persists today.
This event seeks to ground a history we need to remember rightly in the context of the Bay Area with Corrina Gould. Mark Charles will then examine the "discovery" and founding of America, looking at how Christian rationale was used to justify our nation’s most shameful decisions regarding land claim. He will conclude with a vision for how these deep and systemic challenges can be addressed. Sandhya Jha will moderate a Q&A, and there will be an optional debrief afterwards led by Mark Charles.
