And his arrival in the West Indies led to enduring links between Europe and the Americas. In the early years of our nation's history, Christopher Columbus was raised to hero status by writers and historians wishing to create a common memory for our new nation. Five hundred years later, by the quincentennial of 1992, Columbus' name had become somewhat tarnished. Is Columbus a hero worth celebrating, or was he a cruel imperialist?

Extractions: OUTLINES YEAR-LONG STRATEGY FOR EFFORTS The Transform Columbus Day (TCD) Alliance, a coalition of over eighty social justice organizations, which has been protesting the Columbus Day parade in Denver since 1989, calls now for the unequivocal abolition of the Columbus Day holiday as a local, state, and national holiday. The celebration of Columbus is the veneration of colonialism, conquest, and genocide. As people of conscience, we must move our society closer to the democratic values of equality for all, through historical accuracy, justice in the judicial and political processes of the country, and respect for diverse peoples and cultures. During the upcoming year the TCD Alliance will embark on the following program: An International call has gone out to encourage tens of thousands of people from around the world to come to Denver in 2004, either to celebrate the elimination of Columbus Day, or to march against the ongoing celebration of the holiday. Nobel Peace Prize laureate Rigoberta Menchu Tum, has already committed to come to Denver to march with TCD for the elimination of Columbus Day, and for the construction of mutual respect among people through the All Nations / Four Directions March. She has also committed to enlisting the support of other Nobel Laureates, such as Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, and His Holiness, the Dalai Lama.

CONTACT by Judie Haynes Help your English language learners understand the role that Columbus played in American history with this thematic unit for Columbus Day. Over the past few years Columbus' place in the history of the United States has been disputed. Regarded a hero by the European conquerors of the 15th Century, Columbus was not a hero to the Native Americans already living in the New World. Despite the politics of the situation, Columbus' feat was a major event in the history of the world. I like to teach a short unit about Columbus to my English language learners so that they understand what they see and hear around them on Columbus Day.
