This program is part of the Classics in Spirituality series. This group is open to all and meets two Mondays each month (11 a.m. to Noon) via Zoom. Contact us at CobblestoneSpringsRC@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link.

In recognition of Indigenous People’s Day, we are pleased to present Prof. Robin M Wright of the University of Florida Gainesville. This program will be presented via Zoom; please contact us (email: CobblestoneSpringsRC) for the Zoom link.

Dr. Wright will present the current state of changeover from the history we’ve all been taught about Christopher Columbus to the true history of the hundreds of native nations that filled the continents before the European arrival and how American education is being refashioned.

Presenter: Dr Wright received his PhD from Stanford in 1981. After education, he taught for 20 years at the State University of Campinas in Brazil and has been teaching at the University of Florida since 2005. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Dr Wright has written or co-written 10 books and numerous articles.
