The true meaning of Columbus Day

Basil M. Russo is the National President of the Order Italian Sons and Daughters of America. 

Russo spoke at the celebration of the beginning of Italian Heritage Month in the rotunda of Cleveland’s City Hall.  He told of the importance of Columbus Day and how some groups mischaracterize the meaning of Columbus Day for their own personal agenda. 

He said that Columbus Day represents the beginning of the historic process of immigration to America and should be celebrated by all ethnic groups.
