The 1619 Project: Why the Fuss? Description:
Learn more about Slavery and its After Effects in then USA. The 1619 Project proposes that the foundation of the United States occurred, not in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence, but in 1619 when the first ship carrying a cargo of enslaved Africans arrived on the shores of the American continent.
As a black PhD art historian, John Hunter will provide an overview of the content of The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story and present his views as to why this book has been both praised and embraced by many, but reviled and rejected by some.
