The 1619 Project: What White History Does Not Teach Us

Planning for the New Year? Plan to join the discussion on issues raised in the Hulu Series–The 1619 Project. Beginning on January 24, the Racial Justice Team will host the showing and discussion of the six episodes of The 1619 ProjectView the “The 1619 Project” trailer here.

The six-part 1619 Docuseries is an expansion of “The 1619 Project” created by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones and the New York Times Magazine. The series seeks 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.  For more on this film series, visit the Wikipedia entry here.  To read the original 1619 Project New York Times article, go here.

Each of the six episodes focuses on a different facet of Black life in America, including “Democracy,” “Race,” “Music,” “Capitalism,” “Fear,” and “Justice.”
