Town Hall’s new Replay Matinee series invites you to come together in our building to enjoy screenings of our greatest hits – during the day! This community program is free to all participants.
Note: this is a screening of a previous in-person event. The speakers will not be in attendance.
This Replay Matinee features Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, who came to the Town Hall stage in 2019 to discuss the young readers’ edition of her book, An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States.
The history of America as a country goes beyond that of a land “discovered” by a few brave men in the “New World.” Indigenous human rights advocate Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz reveals the roles that settler colonialism and policies of American Indian genocide played in forming our national identity. In this screening of her 2019 event, Dunbar-Ortiz is joined by Seattle-based educator and activist Nikkita Oliver to present an examination of the legacy of Indigenous peoples’ resistance, resilience, and steadfast fight against imperialism. Together they explore An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States for Young People, a comprehensive adaptation of Dunbar-Ortiz’s essential work restructured for middle-grade and young adult readers to include discussion topics, archival images, original maps, recommendations for further reading, and more.
