COVID-19: AFRICAN AMERICANS & RACIAL HEALTH DISPARITIES PART 4

to

Presented in partnership with Detroit Public Television, historian Jamon Jordan opens this insightful and powerful talk with the following statements: “From 1492-1502, Christopher Columbus (Columbus was Italian, and his real name in Northern Italy was Cristoffa Corombo, while in the rest of Italy he would’ve been Cristoforo Colombo) made four voyages to the Caribbean. Along with bringing Catholicism, he also brought European conquest and slavery. But, that ain’t it! The Spanish, who sent Columbus to the “Indies,” and were the overwhelming majority of those who came with Columbus on his four voyages, brought at least thirty diseases from Europe that the Carib, Arawak, Taino and other indigenous people of the Caribbean had no immunity against.”
