1619 Project Discussion Group: The Conversation Continues
November 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
Come to the Lee Road Branch as we continue our discussion of the special edition of The New York Times Magazine, “1619 Project” on November 18 and January 27.
“1619 Project” challenges us to reframe our understanding of U.S. history by considering 1619 as the beginning of this nation’s story. Through visual and written pieces from historians, journalists, playwrights, poets, authors, and artists, the issue examines the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans to Jamestown, Virginia.
Reference copies of “1619 Project” are available to read at the Library and free copies are available to download at: http://pulitzercenter.org/sites/default/files/full_issue_of_the_1619_project.pdf
