To learn that it was mass slavery, and not solely disease and epidemics that eradicated the lives of Indigeneous people in America. This book is imperative to comprehend the untold story of the enslavement of Indigenous People.

– Alicia and Sabrina, Reading for Understanding Workgroup


“Since the time of Columbus, Indian slavery was illegal in much of the American continent. Yet, as Andrés Reséndez illuminates in his myth-shattering The Other Slavery, it was practiced for centuries as an open secret. There was no abolitionist movement to protect the tens of thousands of Natives who were kidnapped and enslaved by the conquistadors.”

What should a participant expect?


Participants should expect an email with a read-ahead presentation and a one question quiz to access the meeting credentials preceding the event.

We start together as a large group (7-7:10pm), briefly return to a large group at the half-way point (7:50-8pm) and conclude as a large group (8:40-9pm). Virtual doors open at 6:45pm, unless otherwise noted. All times are Eastern United States.
