September 17: Settler Colonialism by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

Settler Colonialism by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz kicks off our new series Transformative Futures which creates a virtual space for all of us to learn together and tackle new, important ideas. We will gather for one and half hour to parse through this 60-page document without moderators or author visits.
Settler Colonialism is a pamphlet put together by Daraja Press for their "Thinking Freedom" series. It examines the genesis in the USA of the first full-fledged settler state in the world, which went beyond its predecessors in 1492. The text originates from Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz (2021) Not A Nation of Immigrants: Settler Colonialism, White Supremacy, and a History of Erasure and Exclusion.
You can buy the pamphlet on the Daraja Press website here OR you can write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to acquire a e-copy.
