Senior Fellow David Tucker penned an editorial on Christopher Columbus that was published in the The Wall Street Journal this morning. Positive comments have been flowing in to his email from all over the country today. We invite you to read this thoughtful and balanced editorial here.

Within hours of the editorial hitting the newsstands, we were contacted by Fox News and David was invited to be interviewed live by Fox News Happening Now host Jenna Lee.  The interview explored the editorial in greater depth and highlighted the powerful sentiment that Columbus Day should be a day to “ponder the human capability for good and evil and wonder how we might encourage more of the good.” I encourage you to view the Fox News interview.

And finally, as part of our expanded citizen education efforts, we continue to produce topical quizzes that are published throughout the country. Today’s quiz on Columbus Day was published in 11 newspapers in 11 different states and featured on Put your knowledge to the test!

In the words of Ashland University President Dr. Carlos Campo, “We are grateful to have top academics at Ashland University’s Ashbrook Center, who explore the complexity of history instead of simply accepting an inflexible view at face value.”
