Jimmie Durham Talks: Benjamin Madley
Between 1846 and 1873, California's Indian population plunged from perhaps 150,000 to 30,000. UCLA Professor Benjamin Madley’s An American Genocide: The United States and the California Indian Catastrophe, 1846-1873 details this chilling history, including the involvement of state and federal officials, how taxpayer dollars supported the violence, the Indigenous resistance, who did the killing, and why it constituted genocide.
A book signing with the author will follow.
