Tune in Friday, June 25th at 3pm EST on Black Power 96.3 FM in St Petersburg for Reparations in Action: White Lies Shattered series episode 10 and the third part of Penny Hess eradicating the lie that the white man discovered America and settled the west.
In Episode 10 of "White Lies Shattered," Chairwoman Penny and USM Chair Jesse Nevel take a close look at the genocidal horrors settler colonialism has inflicted on the first nations of Canada at colonial death camps known as residential schools where untold thousands of indigenous children were tortured, raped and murdered by priests, nuns government agents and regular white citizens.
Kamloops is just one of these concentration camps which has been in the headlines recently since the discovery of over 215 bodies of native children in a mass grave. We will expose the vile nature of this bloody legacy, the complicity of the white church, state and populace and hear chilling testimony from indigenous survivors of the Canadian holocaust. The only way to rectify this nightmare is through reparation, the return of all Indigenous lands to Indigenous people.
