The C.O.W.S. The Heathen School: John Demos

April 23, 2014

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Professor John Demos. Mr. Demos is the Samuel Knight Professor of History at Yale University where he’s taught since 1986. He is a social historian of early America who’s penned several books, including The Unredeemed Captive: A Family Story from Early America. We’ll dissect his latest book, The Heathen School: A Story of Hope and Betrayal in the Age of the Early Republic. Demos examines a 19th century missionary school in Connecticut. Whites brought in non-white students from all over the world – Hawaii, China, South America and a significant portion of Native Americans. Their aim was to indoctrinate/educate these non-whites so that they could go back to their respective territories to spread their White Jesus and White/Racist concepts. The school was financially supported and ballyhooed until… bedroom integration. White backing immediately withered when some of these non-white students attempted to marry White women. We’ll gt Mr. Demos’ thoughts on the integral aspect of missionary work in the Religion of White Supremacy.
