Fireside Chat: History of Col. George Wright

When: Tue., Feb. 13, 5:30-7:30 p.m. 2018

Spokane Falls Community College is in the midst of celebrating its 50th birthday, and as part of the celebration they’re hosting what is sure to be an interesting discussion of controversial local figure Colonel George Wright. Author Donald Cutler will be on hand to talk about his book Hang Them All: George Wright at the Plateau Indian War, and he’ll be joined by Gonzaga faculty member and Colville tribal member Laurie Arnold, as well as Spokane tribal member Warren Seyler. Expect the talk to address Wright’s role in the region, and the effect of naming places after figures from America’s darkest historical moments.
