[When Mayor de Blasio appointed a commission to review monuments on city-owned land, the biggest outcry predictably came from some Italian Americans defending the Columbus monument, and claiming that the Mayor must hate his Italian heritage. 25 years ago, countering the 500th anniversary celebrations of Columbus’s invasion and occupation, a few of us founded Italian Americans for a Multicultural U.S. (IAMUS), rejecting Columbus as a hero and as a representative of our Italian-ness. If you think that a similar statement by Italian Americans on the monument issue today would be useful--then respond in comments or message me.

Here’s an outreach flyer to Italian Americans about Columbus that we wrote in the 90s.]
