PRESS RELEASE SEPTEMBER 4th, 2018 For More Information, Contact: Rebecca Cramer 612-388-2542 Lifelong Human Rights Activist and Acclaimed Historian Dr. Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz to Speak in Minneapolis September 27 The public is invited to a free public lecture "The White Supremacist Roots of the Second Amendment," Thursday, Sept. 27, 7 p.m., at First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis (FUS), 900 Mt. Curve Ave. Dr. Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz is the author of An Indigenous Peoples History of the United States (2015, Beacon Press) along with numerous other books and articles. She is currently touring to speak about her latest book, Loaded: A Disarming History of the Second Amendment (2018, City Lights Books). The evening will begin with a brief reception, with light refreshments catered by the Sioux Chef. Dunbar-Ortiz’s lecture will follow, drawing from her book and exploring the dire situation surrounding gun addiction in the United States. Her book "Loaded" has received positive reviews. The New Republic says: "Her analysis, erudite and unrelenting, exposes blind spots not just among conservatives, but, crucially, among liberals as well. . . . As a portrait of the deepest structures of American violence,"Loaded" is an indispensable book." The Los Angeles Review of Books writes: "If ... anyone at all really wants to 'get to the root causes of gun violence in America,' they will need to start by coming to terms with even a fraction of what Loaded proposes."

She grew up in the 1940-50s in rural Oklahoma, the daughter of a share cropper father and a part-Indian mother. Her grandfather worked as an organizer for the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and for the Oklahoma Socialist Party during its brief era of success, between the beginning of statehood in 1907 and its repression following the Green Corn Rebellion of 1917. While earning her PhD at UCLA, Dunbar-Ortiz was active in the leadership of the anti-Vietnam War effort, anti-Apartheid and other radical movements of the era. In Boston, she founded and published the magazine of the radical feminist cell 16. Later, she became active in the international movement for Indigenous Rights, both through her extensive academic writing and by advocating at the United Nations for Native sovereignty and land rights. Dunbar-Ortiz participated in the liberation struggles in Central America, living with the Miskito Indians of Eastern Nicaragua during the Contra war. She was an expert witness for the American Indian Movement's Wounded Knee Trial. This event is sponsored by First Unitarian Society, Northland Sustainable Solutions, the Metro Chapter of the Women’s League for Peace and Freedom, and Birchbark Books.
