Vocal Point-Scott Powell

Topic: Columbus and Thanksgiving

Scott Powell of the Discovery Institute has recently written a book on America’s special days, Rediscovering America: How the National Holidays Tell an Amazing Story about Who We Are. This book includes chapters on Columbus Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and the July 4th. In a previous discussion, Scott Powell gave an overview of why America’s past matters and how it can be rediscovered in our holidays. Scott Powell joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss two particular holidays—-Columbus Day, which is under attack today, and also Thanksgiving—a uniquely American holiday. 2021 marks the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated in Plymouth, Massachusetts. www.rediscoveringAmerica.net
