Healing From Colonization on Thanksgiving and Beyond
Edgar Villanueva, vice president of programs and advocacy at the Schott Foundation for Public Education and author of Decolonizing Wealth, and Hilary Giovale, community organizer and philanthropist, share an ancestral bond that is far from unique, but one that is rarely acknowledged. Edgar is a member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. For generations, his family has lived in the same region where Hilary’s ancestor received a land grant after her family migrated from Scotland in 1739. Now 280 years later, Edgar and Hilary reach across the Thanksgiving table to bridge the painful colonial gap.
