This edition: The Day of Mourning

Episode Details

Original tape date: November 23, 2015.

First aired: November 25, 2015.

On this edition of Independent Sources hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we hear about the growing number of indigenous people in the United States who are marking Thanksgiving as a day of mourning rather than merriment. We meet a children’s book author who is trying to change stereotypes about Native Americans with her writing. Then we learn why the Civil War has had a greater impact on modern day Thanksgiving than we recognize.
