DESCRIPTION

Sunday, January 22, 3pm. FREE.

In the fourth installment of the Checks & Balances meeting, we will discuss The Empire and The People , the twelfth chapter of Howard Zinn's 'A People's History of the United States'.

In learning about the history of the federal government's violent acquisition of territory from the Spanish, readers can earn a deeper understanding of the chain of events that has resulted in the Puerto Rican debt crisis, the nature of the PROMESA legislation that was recently signed into law, and the origins of the US's relationship with Cuba and the Philippines.
