The 1619 Project

The 1619 Project is an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that began in August 2019, the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.

Thank you to all those who joined us on August 27th as we engaged in conversation to discover what The 1619 Project is, what we can learn from it, and how we can leverage its lessons to honor our collective history and promote a more just and equitable society for our children.

Special thanks to our presenters Julye Williams, Dr. Charmie Curry, and Claudia A. Fox Tree.
