"Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz's project [in An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States] is to bring us face to face with the astounding fact that today’s U.S. government and it's military continue to rely on the legal fictions and practical tactics that developed during centuries of total war against the indigenous populations of North America." - Chris Carlsson

A half-century after the Vietnam War officially began, we’ll look back at military mutinies, the rise of the volunteer army in response to the “Vietnam Syndrome,” and situate the Vietnam War in the long history of U.S. military aggression, even pre-dating the founding of the United States. Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Paul Cox, Deni Leonard, Michael Blecker.

These talks are meant as an antidote to historical amnesia, to change the climate of critical discussion in San Francisco, and as a place to meet and talk unmediated by corporations, official spokespeople, religion, political parties, or dogma.



We are grateful to the
City Lights Foundation,
Other Avenues Grocery Cooperative,
Rainbow Grocery Cooperative, and the Wild Equity Institute for helping make these Talks happen.
