Talk about Black Patriots and Loyalists at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Denver tomorrow morning at 11:30

I will be speaking on the Times, the D.A.R., current politics (Romney's stunning racism about "free stuff," a new low for a modern Presidential candidate) and Black Patriots and Loyalists at the First Unitarian Universalist Church tomorrow at 11:30. See here. The address is: 4101 E. Hampden Ave., Denver, Colorado [NE Corner of E. Hampden and So. Colorado Blvd.]

Welcomes Special Guest: Professor ALAN GILBERT


Black Patriots and Loyalists: Fighting for Emancipation in the War for Independence

“Alan Gilbert …direct(s) our attention to more oppressed and vulnerable groups, namely Native Americans and slaves… and demolishes the myth that it is ‘anachronistic’ to insist that the Founding Fathers should have applied the preamble of the Declaration of Independence to the bondage of approximately 600,000 African Americans. Their failure to rise to that challenge led to the death of more than 600,000 Union and Confederate soldiers before this great wrong was righted by civil war.” Staughton Lynd, author of Intellectual Origins of American Radicalism (h/t Richard Smith)
