30 Minutes- Robert A. Williams: Savage Anxieties
In Savage Anxieties, Williams shows us how the language of savagery used by the West to talk about the human rights of the world’s indigenous peoples is in dire need of reappraisal. On November 29th, Derechos Humanos held their 9th Annual Corazon de Justicia Awards Banquet in which they celebrate and recognize community organizers for their commitment to justice and social change.

The keynote speaker for the event was Robert A. Williams, the E. Thomas Sullivan Professor of Law and American Indian Studies and Faculty Co-Chair of the Indigenous  Peoples Law and Policy Program at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law. His latest book is "Savage Anxieties: The Invention of Western Civilization." First up on 30 Minutes, we hear from Derechos Humanos Co-Chair Isabel Garcia with an introduction of Rob Williams, followed by Rob Williams with an overview of some of the findings in his book.
